Hang In There is an exhibition asking artists to make motivational artworks. Cultural producers often face difficult roads to develop a sustainable practice. This exhibition is an opportunity for artists to provide an alternative to the commodified and saturated market for motivation, transcending the usual glut of advice, adages, and worksheets to something more singular, incisive, heartfelt, and critically-minded.
