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 a personal connection to mental health disorders.
Please see 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 latest exhibition:
April 16 to May 20 + Evening Reception on May 16
The Soul Relics Museum is a growing archive that collects photographs of objects which relate to a time of personal struggle with mental wellbeing.
Objects are markers of our memories, and Soul Relics believes that object-based storytelling is a way for people to understand what recovery means to them and connect with others who have similar experiences. The project focuses on our relationship with ourselves to foster better understandings of people’s emotions, strengths and resilience and seeks to look beyond the medicalised narrative. As a result there should be a greater understanding of what it is like to struggle with mental ill health.
If you are an artist, and are interested in having your work displayed at the SGDP, please contact the Centre's Scientific Research Manager Alex Dawes or the Junior Research Secretary Daniel Barwick
Visitors to art exhibitions are welcome to visit during office hours (Monday – Friday from 9am – 16:30pm).
Please note that the MRC SGDP Centre closes promptly to the public at 5pm. If you have any queries about visiting, please call reception on 020 7848 0873.
