The Govett-Brewster is set to premier the work of New York-based Venezuelan artist Javier Téllez.

The work Téllez reflects a sustained interest in bringing peripheral communities and ‘invisible’ situations to the fore of contemporary art. His work deals with institutional dynamics, disabilities and mental illness as marginalising conditions, and borderline collective and individual behaviours. His projects have often involved working in collaboration with people experiencing mental illness. His parents both being psychiatrists, Téllez has recurrently examined themes of psychiatric character bringing an autobiographical element to his work.

This exhibition will feature his recent work Letter on the Blind for the Use of Those Who See (2007) and Meditations Upon a Broomstick (2004).
