With Art In Mind.
The Zebra One Gallery in London is holding a new exhibition called “With Art in Mind” to bring attention to the work of contemporary artists who have suffered and struggled with mental health. The exhibition’s aim is to raise money for the Mental Health Foundation.
The exhibition will showcase artists like Kim Noble, “the artist with 21 personalities” who’s work is inspired by her alter egos that stem from her Dissociative Identity Disorder, and Charlie and Eddie Proudfoot who use art as a communication tool to the outside world. In addition to artists who have suffered from mental illness, work from psychologists like Lee Du Ploy, who painted his patients over the last 30 years. The show will also feature iconic artist like Salvador Dalí, Andy Warhol and Francis Bacon.
Zebra One Gallery’s Gabrielle Du Ploy says of the exhibition: “This is such an important time for everyone to be involved with supporting mental health. To be able to raise awareness in such a positive way, showing how art can be more than a means of support, is fantastic."
A percentage of the sales from the pieces will go to the Mental Health Foundation. An organization that have been running their own art programme for ten years, with the intent to show the importance and connection between art and mental illness.“With Art in Mind” will open on 16 November at Zebra One Gallery in London.
