This spring sees the finale of the sophomore year of our collaborative project with Central Saint Martins as we launch new exhibition Bathed in Blue at King’s College London from 24 January 2019.

Feeling blue is often related to negative emotions but the Bathed in Blue exhibition proposes to embrace the colour. Described as 'the colour of interior life' by essayist William H. Gass, the blue artworks selected by the emerging Central Saint Martins curators allow viewers to immerse themselves in the soothing qualities of the deepness of the sea, the pureness of the sky or the fluidity of water.

University raises unique challenges to students’ mental health and wellbeing. Approximately 29% of students experience clinical levels of psychological distress, associated with an increased risk of anxiety, depression and personality disorders. The CSM students explored ways in which art can support the physical and mental health of their peers, while pushing the boundaries of what is expected of art in health and social care.
