The art of MS – symptoms under the spotlight will showcase the work of 12 artists living with MS. Created by MS Ireland in partnership with Novartis, the exhibition has been organised to raise awareness of MS and its wide-ranging symptoms to mark World MS Day 2022.
Featuring paintings, digital illustrations, freestanding sculptures and creative video content, the artists will be using their chosen format to illustrate the symptoms of their disease and the impact it has on their life.
The 12 works of art on display were shortlisted by an external panel of judges and chosen for their ability to impactfully depict the many symptoms of MS, many of which are invisible and unknown to the general public.
Some artists will depict symptoms such as fatigue, vision impairment, depression and difficulties with memory and thinking, while others will look at the impact MS has had on their identity and the societal disability faced due to constantly having to live with and challenge inaccessibility.
