Our Space Gallery in London, run by mental health charity Together, currently has an exhibition on titled ‘Wide Open.’ It is claimed to be an exhibition of Outsider Art running until August 2nd so pop along if you can. There is a very moving piece on display of a clay figure lying on its front with its hands and legs tied behind the body-very powerful.
The website says\:
This two-month alternative summer show invites visitors to step out of the mainstream and into a wide open landscape of work created by 20 ‘outsider’ artists who, for reasons of mental health difficulties or other emotional distress, choose not to become involved with traditional arts institutions.
It’s open Monday-Friday 9-5pm
