Tooting artist to curate exhibition at St George's

Tooting artist to curate exhibition at St George's

St George's Hospital Gallery presents RE:Imagined 2018, 9th May to 25th June 2018.

Following on from the success of last year’s show, RE:Imagined 2018 will give 10 emerging artists an opportunity to showcase their work in a unique gallery space within the hospital. It will also feature work from the curator of the show, Tooting artist Robert John, as well as Malaika Ibrek, Henriette Heimdall, Berkin & Mika and many more. Each piece will ask questions about what you see around you in an unexpected way.

The show will also look to inspire young artists by working with the children in the hospital wards, giving them an opportunity to express their creativity in a new way and hopefully brighten their stay at the hospital.

Robert John, Creator/Show Curator, said, “I am delighted to be presenting the third show in such a unique and interesting space. It’s wonderful that so many people will be able to engage with the project and support the Hospital Charity through RE:Imagined 2018.”

All profits made from the show will be donated to St George’s Hospital Charity through the sale of the art, framed prints and donations. The show is supported by the charity and Unicorn Publishing Group.

Noel Cramer, Director of Fundraising at St George’s Hospital Charity, said: “We’re thrilled to be a part of this exciting exhibition. Since 1990, the Arts Team have developed engaging exhibitions, commissions, and participatory arts programmes which enhance the wellbeing of both patients and visitors. It is just one of the projects funded by the charity which touches the lives of the thousands of people cared for by the hospitals and local community services each year.”

Joanna Wakefield, Arts Director of Live Arts at St. George’s, said “We’re excited about hosting “Re-Imagined 2018” new hospital art gallery. Being a large UK teaching hospital, we are keen to support exhibitions that link arts and health and have a health related theme. When I visited the 2017 exhibition, I found it to be very inspirational and insightful into awareness of the plight of Parkinson’s Disease.”

Lord Ian Strathcarron, Unicorn Publishing Group Chairman, said “We’re excited to be supporting the immersive exhibition by artist Robert John. It’s great to see Robert giving emerging artists a platform to showcase their work based on his very unique idea, whilst supporting St George’s Hospital Charity.”

The exhibition takes place in The Ingredients Restaurant on the 1st floor of The Lanesborough Wing, 9 May to 25 June 2018.
