Sat 15 October 2016, 11:00 – 12:30 BST
Join Dr David O’Flynn, Chair of the Adamson Collection Trust and Consultant Psychiatrist at Lambeth Hospital to explore works and objects from the Adamson Collection.
The Collection includes about 5500 objects, including drawings, paintings, ceramics, sculptures and works with other media, made by long stay asylum patients at Netherne Hospital. Today much of the work has been transferred to the Wellcome however a selection of work and objects are on display at Lambeth Hospital.
‘Bedlam: The Asylum and Beyond’ features ‘Abandoned Goods’ a film made in collaboration documenting the mass movement of artworks from the Hospital to the Vaults of the Wellcome”
