"Throughout the History of Art, madness has been a recurring subject matter.

This exhibition intends to explore both ends of madness, whether it is the artist who makes work that is indeed a struggle to achieve because the search for the impossible artefact is being explored, or it is about how art can be used as a therapy and explanation of why circumstances have happened, for example, how a nervous breakdown or an addiction can lead to a fulfilling art work."

"A Public symposium is being held on Thursday 14th April to discuss some of the issues raised in the exhibition. The Symposium will be chaired by Angus Pryor, Reader in Fine Art, University of Gloucestershire. Artist and co-founder of Plastic Propaganda, the panellists will include:-

  • Professor Janet Sayers - Emeritus Professor of Psychoanalytic Psychology at University of Kent
  • Dr Grant Pooke - Author, Historian - Lecturer at University of Kent
  • Tony Gammidge - Artist, film maker, art therapist, lecturer and Arts and Health worker."
