Patient Experience (PtExp) was founded in late 2014. Beginning as a series of informal meetings, we quickly realized the dire need for discussion and community among artists who are not only battling illnesses, but also investigating that experience in a creative way. We now stand as a group of artists who produce work independently as well as collaboratively on health and illness, living and dying. As individuals, we continue to make work from our own personal motivations and intentions. As a collective, we strive to open the discussion on illness with art that is dark, humorous, and unflinchingly real for a conversation of sincerity and authenticity.
Current Patient Experience members include Siobhan Hebron, Hannah Karsen, Daniel Leighton, Ted Meyer, Lauren Potts, Dominic Quagliozzi, Sarah (SK) Riley, Sydney Snyder, and Dylan Trumbull. Past members include Bettina Hubby.
