Edward Adamson was the pioneer of art therapy and the first art therapist to be employed by the NHS. This exhibition explores his life and work and includes a range of artworks created by people who were placed in Netherne, a British asylum, between 1946 and 1981.The work is displayed at the Maudsley Hospital in a previously abandoned corridor, which has been reclaimed and turned into a public art gallery. More work is on display at the art gallery and museum at Bethlem Royal Hospital in Beckenham, the world’s oldest psychiatric hospital.
