Maudsley Long Gallery

The Maudsley Long Gallery showcases work connected to South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, Maudsley Charity and our partners. 

We host three shows a year as themed exhibitions including invited solo shows, work by young people, community projects and selected touring exhibitions from Bethlem Gallery. Additionally we provide a space to showcase the work of artists connected to South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust. 

Maudsley Long Gallery was established in 2013 following a grant from the Maudsley Charity. The gallery space uses a reclaimed staff corridor that was previously locked and unused. The space is now open to everyone. The space is managed and curated by Bethlem Gallery.  

In addition to the Long Gallery we have a small exhibition space (three locked cabinets) next to the gallery. We invite applications from people who wish to exhibit in this space. Download a copy of the application form here.

Current exhibition:

I want to Live. Open daily from 8am to 7pm 

The photographs and interviews initially formed part of a four month exhibition at the Free Space Project (London) and a series of arts workshops focusing on suicide and bereavement.

A book is available of the full I Want to Live project which includes more interviews, images and an introduction by Anna McNay.

Daniel Regan shoots commissions, delivers arts workshops, works as a consultant and teaches photography. He is Artistic Director of the arts and wellbeing charity, Free Space Project and runs Arts & Health Hub, a place for artists to connect, learn & share resources about arts and health.

 

Exhibition Introduction by Dr Nicola Byrne, Deputy Medical Director, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and Trustee, Maudsley Charity.

By showcasing Daniel’s work in this space we hope to provide an opportunity to create discussion and engagement in the topic of suicide.

We are aware that the subject may be distressing for some people, especially given its position in a busy hospital, focussed on recovery. But I believe our job is create a space where we can explore subjects that can sometimes be difficult in a sensitive way. The Maudsley Charity funded Long Gallery space exists as an open and accessible public art space,  designed to breakdown stigma and encourage people from the outside world in.

I hope you will agree that Daniel’s work is both sensitive and compelling. Over the course of this exhibition we will be running a series of workshops for staff and patients to talk about suicide in a supported space. 

By providing a platform to openly talk suicide through workshops and other activities we are seeking to understand the views of our patients, carers and staff, to help contribute to the Trust’s Suicide Prevention Strategy

We are using this exhibition as an opportunity to open up conversation through the arts and to engage people in a more alternative and creative way.
