Art By Offenders, Secure Patients and Detainees

Cut and pasted from the Southbank Centre website:

Fascinating in theme, remarkable in artistic quality, and always moving, this is the UK's annual showcase of visual arts, film, music and writing by prisoners and others in secure settings. This year's exhibition is curated by a group of magistrates - a groundbreaking exploration of judgement, art and crime. A partnership between the Koestler Trust, Southbank Centre and the Magistrates' Association.

The exhibition opened today (Wednesday 21 September) and runs through to Sunday 20 November. It is on Spirit Level and Level 2 Foyers at the Royal Festival Hall and is open from 10am to 11pm daily.

I will post my thoughts once I have been round.
