Talking about the Talking Cure with Melissa Stern

Last September WAM hosted artist Melissa Stern for the opening of her Target Studio for Creative Collaboration exhibition, The Talking Cure. I had the opportunity to sit down with Melissa during her visit and ask her some questions about her inspiration, her practice, and her works in the exhibition.

Check out some highlights of the interview here.
