Since 1948, Fountain House has sought to end isolation and create opportunities for people living with serious mental illness. In 2000, the organization founded Fountain House Gallery as a not-for-profit exhibition space to support the careers and creativity of its members.
“YELL!” is a group exhibition spanning verse, performance, film, and painting that explores the artists’ experience of navigating the world with mental illness. To see the exhibition, viewers navigate a maze-like installation intended to parallel the difficulties of navigating mental healthcare in the U.S. Works, augmented by audio of Fountain House members, explore such themes as trauma, stigma, hospitalization, recovery, and ultimately, freedom.
