The Art of Falling Apart
Liverpool Mental Health Festival 2018 included our annual Art Exhibition, running for the 5th year. The theme was ‘The Art of Falling Apart’ & presented pieces from Merseyside artists drawing on their own personal experience on the theme of mental health. Work was exhibited at The Brink between 11th October 2018 & 7th January 2019. This year, the exhibition also showcased a collaborative photography project produced in partnership with Liverpool Irish Festival, Irish Community Care Merseyside, & Irish Traveller women. ‘It’s the Travelling Life’ featured photographs taken by & documenting the lives of Irish Traveller women and their families. An expanded exhibit at Liverpool Irish Festival also featured photographs by award-winning American photographer & film-maker Jona Frank. Special thanks to all the Irish Traveller women who participated in the project.
Internationally acclaimed artists The Singh Twins joined 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.” (The Singh Twins)
