Mr A moves in mysterious ways: artists from the Adamson Collection

In association with the Bethlem Gallery, join us for a panel discussion introducing a new exhibition of works from the Adamson Collection on show in Birkbeck’s Peltz Gallery. The Adamson Collection is an internationally renowned archive of art objects made by residents of a long-stay British psychiatric hospital between 1946 and 1981, under the guidance of art-therapy pioneer Edward Adamson. This is a rare opportunity to encounter these important works.

Welcome and introductions by Professor Annie E. Coombes (Birkbeck), Simon Chaplin (Director of Culture and Society, Wellcome Trust) and Dr Fiona Johnstone (Birkbeck):
