Our exhibitions are a vital part to our mission. We hope to find artists who not only identify with madness, or adjacent identities, but who challenge us to consider many aspects of our shared human conditions.



Previous Exhibitions

JJ McLuckie


JJ's exhibition "Tunnels" was the inaugural exhibition at PRESS HERE and consisted of paintings by the artist as well as a unique mural painted in the exhibition space. JJ's artwork explores many topics, some of which include queer identity, eroticism, and madness.


October and November 2022

Hel Martinez

The Passion of Sergius and Bacchus

Hel offered a performance art event titled "The Passion of Sergius and Bacchus" which they described as a "performance based on the tale of two Christian martyred saints from the 4th century. It is a call to reclaim the queerness erased from Catholicism and a reminder that its roots lie in the strength of the oppressed."

Isabelle Rizo

Madness and Mysticism

Isabelle’s first exhibition with The Center for Mad Culture was a series of watercolor works which examine meaning making through representations of madness and mysticism. As a Romanian political refugee, Isabelle explored connections to her culture and what it means “to navigate being American in Romania and Romanian in America?”

Isabelle's publication "Beyond the Cape of Dracula: Demystifying Transylvania" is available in the Center's library!

April and May 2023

Not Art Therapy 

Sandie Yi and Katie O'Neill

Sandie Yi and Katie O'neill will host a collaborative exhibition which asks us to consider the ways we see and discuss disability artwork most frequently as therapeutic instead of culturally important and viable. 

October thru December 2023 

And Other Poems

Found poetry from a private collection

This collection of found text confronts our assumptions about poetry, asking who has the power to define language, who that power benefits, and why we pathologize language.
