In 2015, as part of an academic award, I curated an international exhibition of mosaic art exploring the inner world of mosaic artists as they make and the connection between making and their mental health. The exhibition was awarded a Prize for outstanding work by King’s College London.
I am excited to announce that Behind the Glass is now going live as part of London Creativity and Wellbeing Week – a pan London event celebrating and promoting the role of arts in wellbeing.
An exhibition of all the images from Behind the Glass alongside the powerful artists statements about the inner journey of the maker will be exhibited at the exciting new South London arts venue, The Sound Lounge.
Several of the the original mosaic pieces will also be on show alongside projections of the whole international online exhibition, with moving accounts of the meaning behind the making.
The exhibition will culminate in a celebration of art and wellbeing – with some amazing musicians, spoken word and of course…mosaic art!
