5802720We Made This: Koestler Trust Exhibition
DateFriday 1st March 2019 to Sunday 19th May 2019
DescriptionFrom 1st March - 19th May 2019, Turner Contemporary hosts an exhibition of visual art, writing and music with a difference; We Made This is a Koestler Trust exhibition, curated by people on probation with Kent, Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company (KSS CRC). Each piece they have selected for display was made in prisons, secure hospitals, young offender institutions, immigration removal centres or by people on probation. Together they show expressions of creativity, courage, insight, confusion and humour usually hidden from view. We Made This is the result of a new partnership between Koestler Trust, the UK's best-known prison arts charity, Turner Contemporary, and KSS CRC, the agency responsible for supporting and supervising low and medium risk offenders in the region. Several of the artworks will be for sale, with prices ranging from £40 - £500. Money from sales is proportioned between the artist, Koestler Trust and the charity Victim Support. Sally Taylor, Chief Executive of Koestler Trust, is delighted with the partnership and said: "This is our first regional show in the south east and we're thrilled that Turner Contemporary will be the setting for Koestler artwork, in the same year as the gallery hosts the prestigious Turner Prize. To have service users from KSS CRC as the curators adds another layer of meaning to this project, and we're very much looking forward to seeing the exhibition emerge from their efforts and ideas."
