Indigo Mind is an ambitious group exhibition celebrating the work of late neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks. Opening September 26, 2015 at StoreFrontLab, the project features 34 artists who explore a range of brain and body phenomena examined in Sacks’ research. These works present the influence Sacks has had on our understanding of the human condition in its limitless variation and form. 

The opening celebration will feature a special screening of Bill Morrison's Re: Awakenings, a 2013 documentary charting Sacks' foundational work spent at Beth Abraham Hospital, incorporating original super8 footage shot by Sacks, himself. We are thrilled to feature this film to honor the life and work of Dr. Sacks.
