Journeys. The Healing Arts
The first of its kind ‘Arts in Health’ exhibition, created by in partnership by Saatchi Gallery and CW+, the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Journeys: The Healing Arts is a selection of bespoke artworks from the CW+ art collection, commissioned to enhance the environment and improve patient outcomes at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. This is the first time CW+ has exhibited artworks from its collection on this scale to the wider public within a gallery setting.
Brian Eno, a featured artist and musician, said: “To be part of the CW+ exhibition at Saatchi Gallery is a great honour. For a number of years, I’ve worked with the CW+ team in creating works that provide a positive and calming environment, something that seems vital in a patient’s experience and recovery. My latest work, Midlands, aims to take patients on both a physical and emotional journey, to hopefully relieve some of the anxiety or pain they might be experiencing. It is fantastic to be exhibited in such a splendid gallery alongside so many other wonderful artworks all with a mutual aim of expediting healing through art.”
