Thursday 15th – Sunday 25th September 2016

Part of Festival of the Mind 2016, this exhibition by Trish O’Shea incorporates photography, text, drawing, and 3D work. ADJOIN engages you in Trish’s own personal experience of arthritis and surgery. It aims to increase awareness and understanding of the physical, emotional, and psychological effects of the condition and to help clinicians and patients develop better treatments.

The work included in ADJOIN is the result of a series of conversations with Professor Mark Wilkinson. Trish O’Shea also worked with filmmaker and photographer Jackie Jones on aspects of this piece. An accompanying talk will be held at Spiegeltent on Monday 19th September.

Artist and educator Trish O’Shea specialises in projects that enable people to express themselves through drawing, painting, photography, and film. Trish has personal experience with osteoarthritis.

Professor Mark Wilkinson is an academic orthopaedic surgeon. Mark has a special interest in arthritis and believes that patients’ personal experience can be used alongside clinical data to enhance treatment.

All galleries are accessible by ramp, however the doorways are 28 inches wide. The toilets and cafe are not currently wheelchair accessible.
