Over the past two years the Koestler Trust has travelled the country to share artwork generated by the Awards with audiences across the UK. We have held exhibitions in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester and Gateshead.
Our UK Exhibitions take place annually at the Southbank Centre in London and have included RE:FORM Art By Offenders, Secure Patients and Detainees (2015) and Catching Dreams: Art By Offenders, Secure Patients and Detainees (2014). In Scotland we worked with Summer Hall, Edinburgh, to show 183 More Sleeps The Koestler Scotland Exhibition (2015). Meanwhile we collaborated with the BALTIC Centre and Gateshead Central Library to show LOUD! The Koestler Exhibition for the North East (2016).
We worked with mac Birmingham to show Double Take: The Koestler Exhibitions for the West Midlands (2015), joined forced with the Castlefield Gallery in Manchester to show Snail Porridge: The Koestler Exhibition for the North West (2014) and visited the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff to show Illumination: The Koestler Exhibition for Wales (2014).
