Thursday 11th October 2018: The Art of Falling Apart Launch Event (4.00pm – 5.30pm)
The Brink, 21 Parr Street, Liverpool L1 4JN
Exhibition runs: 11th October – 7th January 2019
Now in its 5th year, our annual art exhibition presents pieces from Merseyside artists drawing on their own personal experience on the theme of mental health.
“Although this exhibition has a mental health theme, the focus is most definitely the ART!! And exactly the approach to building inner strength we need to see.” (Exhibition Viewer, 2017)
Internationally acclaimed artists The Singh Twins join us once again as exhibition Patrons:
“We’re delighted to be Patrons of the Liverpool Mental Health Festival Art Exhibition for the fourth year. The range and diversity of the work, and the artistic talent on show is always impressive. During our involvement, we’ve found these exhibitions to be both moving and thought-provoking, particularly when we’ve had the privilege of opening the exhibitions and meeting so many of the artists, so we’re excited about this year’s launch and about viewing the works on display.” (The Singh Twins)
Irish Traveller Women’s Photography Project
This year, the exhibition also showcases a collaborative photography project produced by Liverpool Mental Health Consortium, Liverpool Irish Festival and Irish Community Care Merseyside, in partnership with Irish Traveller women. The project features photographs documenting the project and the lives of the women and their families. Special thanks to all the Irish Traveller women who participated in the project. The partnership with Liverpool Irish Festival will see an expanded exhibit also featuring photographs by award-winning American photographer and film-maker Jona Frank running as part of their festival, 18-28 Oct 2018.
