The Supreme Court
3 Aug – 30 Sep 2016
Parliament Square, London SW1P 3BD
Mon-Fri 9.30am – 4.30pm
PAPERWORK has been curated by the Koestler Trust, in collaboration with Victim Support, at the invitation of the newly formed UK Supreme Court Arts Trust.
The exhibition explores the creative ways that paper (a material integral to the workings of the legal system), has been re-imagined and re-worked by Koestler Award entrants. The artworks cover a range of Koestler Award visual categories and provide a unique snapshot of the creative achievements of prisoners and secure patients across the UK.
As part of its collaboration with Victim Support for this exhibition, the Koestler Trust invited people who had been affected by crime to respond to some of the artworks. Their responses are displayed within the exhibition. Victim Support is an independent charity which helps people affected by crime and traumatic events in England and Wales providing individual, independent, emotional and practical help to enable people to cope and recover from effects of crime.
With thanks to our partners and supporters:
