ABOUT Broken Grey Wires:
Broken Grey Wires is a groundbreaking project exploring mental health in contemporary art to enhance our experience and knowledge of mental health issues. Originating from personal experience we aim to tackle the relationship between mental health issues and their role and use in contemporary art practice.
Starting with a website as the focal point for exhibitions and all artists involved, we will develop the space to include an interactive archive of information. This is the heart of Broken Grey Wires, a legacy of mental health in contemporary art that is anchored internationally.
Support had come from across the art scene, including Stuart Semple, who is currently an ambassador for the mental health charity Mind, Ryan Trecartin, The Vacuum Cleaner, Jake and Dinos Chapman and Jeremy Deller, all of whom will be exhibiting in the physical exhibitions across the UK.
Organisational support for the project has also been overwhelming and has come from all sectors of society, including the mental health charity Manchester Mind, Time to Change, Everton in the Community and the Early Intervention Psychosis service in Manchester, as well as numerous galleries across the UK.
Broken Grey Wires welcomes you to explore mental health in contemporary art and invites you to look around, create, and be inspired by our absorbing, alternative world.
