Through Practice art exhibition @ ORTUS

We’re very excited to announce the opening of Through Practice, an art exhibition we’ve been involved in on display at the ORTUS Conferencing and Events Venue.

Through Practice is a group show featuring artists working on Bethlem Gallery’s Mental Health and Justice public engagement programme exploring mental health and the law.

Since June 2019, our Programme Manager and Artist has been working closely with the Bethlem Gallery and patients and staff across several inpatient units at Bethlem Royal Hospital to produce an audio piece exploring the concept of insight in mental health, and the diversity of understandings of illness and wellness among patients and clinical teams.

In Through Practice we share some of the work in progress on this ongoing collaborative project, including excerpts from a transcribed interview with a service user.

The exhibition has an accompanying public programme which will include opportunities to learn more and contribute to the themes of the project. Artist-led events will include risograph printing with Level Press and lunchtime conversations exploring mental healthcare and the law.

Fellow artists and collaborators include Bethlem Wood Library, Intoart and Mawuena KattahMark Titchner, OOMK and Level Press, Sarah Carpenter and the vacuum cleaner.

The show is open from 8:00am-5:30pm, 23rd January – 10th April, at ORTUS Conferencing and Events Venue, 82-96 Grove Lane, Camberwell, London SE5 8SN (map).
