Art exhibitions at the MRC SGDP Centre

At the SGDP Centre, we have hosted many art exhibitions since opening. Each exhibition typically runs for approximately three months, with many artists being local and with often some connection to work in the mental health sector and/or have a personal connection to mental health disorders.

Please see below for our current exhibition and the links on the left for both previous and forthcoming exhibitions.

The Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry (SGDP) Centre would like to proudly present our current:

An exhibition by Patrick Samuel

25 January – 5 April 2018

King’s College London, MRC SGDP Centre 16 De Crespigny Park, Denmark Hill, London SE5 8AF (Open Monday–Friday from 9am–5pm)

About the exhibition

COLOURS WITHIN is the 4th solo exhibition by Patrick Samuel, an artist with Asperger Syndrome, who also lives with synesthesia. His paintings and drawings express how he perceives a world in which, for him, sensory overload is as common as experiencing everyday life as an influx of colours, shapes and patterns. In his own words:

“From light to dark, from the colours I see to the ones I don’t, there’s so much around me at any given moment. I’m always caught in the middle, tethered between worlds, between the real and the unreal. Through my art, I’m trying to bring the spectrums in my mind into this world, to show a glimpse of the worlds I experience, even in fleeting moments.”

COLOURS WITHIN will open with a launch event at the SGDP Centre in Denmark Hill on Thursday, January 25th 2018, 5pm-7pm. Patrick will be introducing his exhibition at 5:30pm, and will be available for interviews throughout the event.
