Join us online for an in conversation with artists Min Wong and Brie Trenerry. In conjunction with Wong’s current exhibition Inner workout in the Ideas Platform and her work for 52 ACTIONS, Artspace’s online commissioning project, Wong and Trenerry will be discussing the history of cult leaders and the often-complicated relationship between the guru and the devotee representing human traits of altruism, vulnerability and optimism, alongside weaknesses such as dominance, desire for power and celebrity status. Referencing pop culture, film theory and lived experiences, Wong and Trenerry will unpack how the spiritual countercultures of the 1960s and 1970s have influenced today’s obsession with the self-help industry.
