ROOM 6.4 / Artists and Mental Health

September 2018 – February 2019

"Madness is a gift from the gods." Plato
"We of the craft are all crazy." Lord Byron

Is mental health a problem or a gift? One in four adults lives with a mental health condition yet this illness often remains shrouded. hARTslane is offering a platform to examine mental health through the experience of artists and their work, to raise awareness and to advocate for the arts as a tool to wellbeing.

ROOM 6.0 focuses on a relevant contemporary issue every 6 months and will provide a forum for exploration and cultural engagement on current affairs. Submissions are welcome from artists and curators alike. The specific topic can be addressed through collaborative and site specific projects, exhibitions, workshops, talks and screenings.
The programme welcomes proposals from UK based as well as international art practicioners

An art exhibition exploring how intrusive thoughts feel to someone experiencing Pure O, a subtype of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The artists have taken the opportunity to open up the discussion of mental health in a subject that isn't much talked about, in order to build awareness and break the stigma surrounding OCD. The show includes a variety of works such as painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, puppetry, illustration and collage.
