A series of photographs detaling the lives of those living with ME in the North East.

About

County Durham based artist Juliet Chenery-Robson exhibits a series of portraits detailing the lives of those living in the shadow of Myalgic Encephalopathy, usually known as ME. Often referred to as the disease of a thousand names, M.E. affects over 250,000 people in the UK and many thousands more throughout the world. Yet this devastating illness is shrouded behind an aura of scepticism. Often regarded as an 'invisible' illness due to its internal symptoms and the uncertainty surrounding its causes and existence, Chenery-Robson seeks to make this somewhat misunderstood illness 'visible' to an often disbelieving audience. And if you are looking for something to do over the June half-term there are more art workshops and activities taking place at the dli. Visit www.durham.gov.uk/dli for more information. You can now buy an Annual Pass for the dli offering unlimited visits to Durham Art Gallery and the DLI Museum for only £4.50 adult, £3.50 adult concession and £2.50 child.
