In June, London will become the site of a city-wide art festival curated by the Mental Health Foundation that a look at the ways in which anxiety and stress affect (and potentially inform) art. 

The Anxiety Arts Festival aims to "engage the public in a diverse dialogue about mental health in order to challenge the stigma and discrimination that surrounds mental illness." There will be film screenings held at the Barbican, ICA, and the National Portrait Gallery, as well as residencies, performances, talks, exhibitions, and a "mental health assessment of a live audience" held at various venues around the city. 

A full list of events and participating galleries will be released on May 7, but The Art Newspaper is reporting that Dulwich Picture Gallery, the Freud Museum, and Peckham Platform are confirmed participants in the festival, with Peckham Platform presenting an exhibition by Kathrin Böhm entitled "Money Distribution Machine and Other Useful Contraptions."
