HOOKED Inaugural Exhibition
HOOKED delves deeply into the complex world of addiction and recovery, exploring the neuroscientific, psychological, social, and cultural aspects of the phenomena. HOOKED seeks to explore questions such as: What is inadequate or even wrong with what we think we know about addiction? Are the things that get us hooked also the things that make life worth living? Don’t most of us sometimes feel the need to fill some kind of inner void? When do our relationships with the things that help us cope with stress become compulsive rather than helpful or fun? Why do some people become addicted while others simply don’t? Is addiction a moral failing, a crime, or just a part of being human? When does the balance tip into a harmful cycle, and how can we extricate ourselves from it?

The exhibition HOOKED will include a range of artworks inspired by scientific research, exploring addiction on personal, clinical, scientific, social levels, and from a number of different perspectives. A public program of events, activities, workshops, and performances will run before and alongside the exhibition.

Call For Artists

Science Gallery Atlanta Inaugural Exhibition Call for Proposals
HOOKED: When Want Becomes Need

HOOKED: When Want Becomes Need is the first international, open call gallery exhibition and event program at Science Gallery Atlanta, opening in 2022. Originating at Science Gallery London (King’s College London) in 2018, HOOKED will combine exhibits from that production with new original exhibits created uniquely for the Science Gallery Atlanta exhibition. We are now inviting faculty, artists, behaviorists, youth, community members, and anyone else with an interest in HOOKED to become part of our inaugural exhibition.

The exhibition HOOKED will include a range of artworks inspired by scientific research, exploring addiction on personal, clinical, scientific, social levels, and from a number of different perspectives. A public program of events, activities, workshops, and performances will run before and alongside the exhibition.

THEME AND TOPICS

For our open call, we’re interested in proposals for exhibits and artworks, whether existing or new, and for related projects including workshops, musical and other performances, film screenings and discussions that critically and experimentally engage with themes and topics including but not limited to:

  • The addiction cycle – craving, harm, recovery, relapse

  • The addicted brain – the adolescent brain and brain plasticity

  • The addiction experience – life as an addict, friends or family

  • Stigma – associated with being an addict, and in the context of a wider society

  • Individual and social “recovery” – how do we recover from addiction?

  • Geography ­– what would an addiction map of Atlanta, the US, or the global picture look like? Does place play a role in addiction?

  • Policy – throughout history, evidence has often been made to fit policy, rather than the other way around. How do we build a society where people can form healthier bonds?

  • Causes of addiction – What makes people vulnerable to addiction?

Ask questions! If you’re unsure about an aspect of your proposal, email info@atlanta.sciencegallery.com.
