As part of the group exhibition Occupational Therapy—on view at CAM May 1 through August 16, 2015—Sanatorium is a living artwork by Mexican artist Pedro Reyes that explores art and psychology. This transient clinic provides short “therapies,” using a combination of ritual, play, and experimentation, by volunteer “therapists” who are trained through a program designed by the artist. CAM’s presentation marks the Midwestern premiere of Sanatorium, which was first presented by the Guggenheim Museum (2011) and was included in the most recent Documenta in Kassel, Germany (2012).
