Presentation of Mental Traveler: A Father, a Son, and a Journey Through Schizophrenia by WJT Mitchell, with Antony Gormley

The IMCC is delighted to announce a presentation of W.J.T. Mitchell‘s latest book, Mental Traveler: A Father, a Son, and a Journey through Schizophrenia on Wednesday 9th December.

W.J.T. Mitchell is the Gaylord Donnelley Distinguished Service Professor of English and Art History at the University of Chicago, and is known for his many books on visual culture, media and politics. This memoir tells the story of one family’s encounter with mental illness and bears witness to the life of the talented young man who was his son, Gabriel Mitchell. The event will include a short film about Gabriel’s work as an artist made by his sister, Carmen Mitchell, and a reading from the memoir of his life by his father.

Sculptor Antony Gormley will also join the event to talk about his sculpture, “The Infinite Cube”, inspired by one of Gabriel’s ideas.

Registration required via Eventbrite. Further details inside the Eventbrite page.
