Exhibition and events in Saint Peter’s explores autism spectrum
An exhibition next month features Stuart Neilson who lectures and writes about the autistic spectrum as a health statistician, and also from his personal perspective of an Asperger syndrome diagnosis in 2009, at the age of 45.
His exhibition of images and words is in St Peter’s Gallery, Cork next month. Named Creating Autism, it explores processes that shape autistic identity and the portrayal of autism in a shared language, media, and public spaces. The images use newspaper coverage, medical textbooks, autistic autobiography and film as raw material for analysis, along with video from around Cork City.
It opens on Thursday, February 7, at 6pm with a panel discussion, and runs until Wednesday, F br ary 27. There are additional talks with Q&A sessions on two Saturdays, February 9 and 16.
The exhibition and events are open to all and free of charge. B ok now via he links on stuartneilson.com/ creatingautism.
