ICAD 2023: Feel-Good Lab

For its 13th edition, ICAD adopts Feel-Good Lab as their or “FGL” as our curatorial manifesto. “FGL” centers around the positive emotions when experimenting, playing, and tinkering; actions that may derive from curiosity or struggle. The concept believes in our agency to create a condition in which we feel aligned with our everyday practice, recognising our rights to achieve a sense of emotional well-being in today’s world. The exhibition is therefore treated as an experimental laboratory to attain or express critiques surrounding this state; a space in which artists, designers, and the public may explore, activate, and rework their feelings. The show offers a closer look at the notions of care, humour, feel-good, and the contrasting emotions that exist alongside them.
