Art in Neurosciences Exhibition
As part of the diverse Art & Therapeutic Design programme being delivered for the new Royal Hospital for Sick Children and Department of Clinical Neurosciences redevelopment, the Re(a)d Bed Exhibition features commissioned artworks from artists and mentees Susana Cámara Leret, Gavin Inglis, Alex Menzies, Florence To, Stacey Hunter and Jack King-Spooner.
Exploring current activity and research interests of the Department of Clinical Neuroscience in Edinburgh, the legacy of Scottish neurosurgeon Prof Norman Dott (1897-1973) guides the exhibition. Originally an engineer, he retrained in medicine following a long spell in hospital recovering from a motorcycle accident. He constantly innovated in product design for neuroscience.
The exhibition also features ‘The Red Bed’ (1916) by James Pryde (1866-1941) from the City of Edinburgh collection, alongside work from Lothian Health Services Archive and Alt-w Fund artists Tomoko Hayashi, Aidan Moesby and Sven Werner. Curated by Ginkgo Projects, the exhibition is funded by the Edinburgh and Lothians Health Foundation.
