An art exhibition is being held at Bethlem Gallery in order to combat the negative mental health factors social media can have on its users.
Entitled Our Future Likes, the exhibition displays a variety of artwork, consisting of photography, graphics, sculptures, writing and more. The art explores the complexities of life online and how social media platforms can lead to a low self-esteem.
Artists such as Dolly Sen address the sentiments apps can bring such as anxiety and negativity. Her work includes a piece entitled What’s Crap App, a fantasy alternative app aimed at measuring the “unreasonableness of society’s expectations”.
The exhibition opens on the September 12 and closes on the November 16; entry is free for all visitors.
