Art at Bethlem

5 November, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

£5

The Bethlem Royal Hospital was founded in the 13th century and still provides mental health care today. In 1930, it moved to its contemporary setting in Beckenham and new practices were introduced such as making spaces for patients to create art. One of the legacies of this approach is today’s Bethlem Gallery, a space in the hospital grounds for artistic experimentation and engaging audiences about mental health and artistic practice. Join Bethlem Gallery, Museum of the Mind and Wellcome Collection curators and artists featured in our current exhibition to learn more.

This is a collaboration between Wellcome Collection and Bethlem Gallery in celebration of our ‘Bedlam: the asylum and beyond’ exhibition and Bethlem’s ‘Reclaiming Asylum’ exhibition.
