Wilderness for the Mind

Wilderness for the Mind
Online exhibition
(12 June – 3 July 2020)

The ‘Wilderness for the mind’ exhibition brought together the works of 31 artists from the Wilderness Art Collective, highlighting the connection between nature and mental wellbeing at the strange and unprecedented time of Covid-19 lockdown. Our courageous, experimental, explorer artists whose life experiences inform their works vary in extremity in their desire to connect fully with nature: wild swimming, mountaineering, sailing and parascending. During lockdown, many of the artists have found new sources of inspiration in their local environments.

The exhibition ran from 12 June – 3 July 2020 and was accompanied by a programme of behind-the-scenes interviews, studio visits and artist demonstrations.
