by Dan Bryans
A local gallery are set to celebrate the work of Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry.
Bethlem Gallery announced plans to feature work by its patron, the Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry, along with paintings, drawings and sculptures by more than fifteen other artists the gallery has exhibited and worked with over the last two decades.
Bethlem Gallery was founded in 1997 to support and exhibit artists who are current or former patients of the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
Its anniversary presentation, entitled It’s how well you bounce, explores the concept of resilience and its relationship to the imagination and artistic practice. Our capacity to cope with adversity and in some cases, be strengthened by it, is an astounding feature of the human condition. Yet society’s expectations that we should bounce back, put up a fight and recover, could be counter-productive in how we deal with adversity.
