Antony Gormley, the renowned artist, curates an exhibition showcasing artworks produced in the UK’s prisons, secure hospitals and immigration removal centres, and by ex-offenders in the community.
This year’s show responds to the theme ‘Inside’ set by Gormley with input from prisoners, and aims to get people talking about the UK’s criminal justice system.
The artworks are selected from over 7,000 pieces of fine art, design, writing and music entered to this year’s Koestler Awards.
This exhibition contains themes that some visitors may find distressing, parental discretion is advised for younger visitors.
