200 voices at Scotland’s biggest mental health art exhibition
16 September 2022
Out of Sight Out of Mind (OOSOOM) celebrates the 10th anniversary of Scotland’s biggest mental health art exhibition.
Taking place in October the exhibition will be spread over three floors in Summerhall and will show artworks made by over 200 people, including films, paintings, sculptures, photography, installations and more.
Since 2013, the exhibition has championed the voices of people with experience of mental health issues by showing their artworks in Edinburgh’s acclaimed Summerhall Galleries. Over the ten-year period it has platformed the voices of over 1000 people and had nearly 10,000 visitors to Summerhall.
As part of the celebrations a short film will be launched, which will share the exhibition’s rich and evolving story, its activist roots and unique ethos. It will speak of the community that has formed around it, what it means to the people who take part, and the passion and investment by those who drive the work forward. A whole room in the galleries will be dedicated to materials from the OOSOOM archives.
Launching on the evening of 11 October, the exhibition will be open at Summerhall from 12 to 30 October, Wednesdays to Sundays, 12-6pm. Visit the exhibition’s website for the most up to date information: www.outofsightoutofmind.scot
