Escapism, Colour & Light: New Exhibition at the Bethlem Gallery opens this week

Escapism, Colour & Light is a new exhibition by Matthew at the Bethlem Gallery, opening this week (Wednesday 27 March). Matthew, a current Bethlem Royal Hospital resident, exhibits vibrant landscapes and abstracted forms, which engage the viewer in imagined terrains and simplified colourful shapes. His work reinvents familiar objects and visions through a sophisticated and playful artistic process.

Opening: 27th March, 3 – 6pm

Exhibition continues: 28th March – 19th April

Wednesday – Friday 11am – 6pm

Museum and Gallery open Saturday 6th April, 11am – 5pm

At 2pm on 6th April, there will be a final opportunity to tour the historic hospital boardroom, before the administration block is closed for building works. The Boardroom at Bethlem is located in the Art Deco administration block, soon to be temporarily closed for construction work on the new museum. It is something of a time capsule, with displays including heraldic crests dating back to 1547, the Bridewell Chandelier of 1757 and portraits from the art collection. This guided tour, starting at the Bethlem Museum, will offer visitors a history of the ancient hospital.
