Following the success of previous shows SNAP, Black Light and Allotment, artist Adam Bridgland and UCLH Arts Curator Guy Noble, have brought together 17 artists to each create a wall-based work in response to the term 'Helter Skelter'.
A full list of artists included in the exhibition is listed below. These Artists are gaining widespread recognition within the art and design world and exhibit internationally. Many are part of major art collections in the UK and abroad. All the artists produce very different work and their approach to the subject has created a diverse exhibition of works.
Painting, printmaking, photography, drawing and collage will be showcased. The exhibition opens this on October 27 and runs until January 12, 2012. All works will be for sale, with thirty percent going to the UCLH Arts fund to ensure the future development of UCLH Arts projects for the benefit of hospital patients.
Guy Noble, UCLH arts curator, said: "Helter Skelter, as the title of the exhibition suggests promises to be one of the most exciting exhibitions of UCLH Arts calendar. The idea of the exhibition was to bring together some of the most exciting up-and-coming British artists to create work which was able to engage, entertain, challenge, excite , distract and uplift patients, visitors and staff alike."
