Dulwich Picture Gallery and Tessa Jowell Health Centre (TJHC) have today announced an ambitious new series of commissions that will invite artists to create and develop site-specific work for the new NHS health centre in East Dulwich.
French-styled crystal chandeliers - view our online showroom - we have a range of modern styled and antique chandeliers at Redmile. Established dealers based on the Kings Road, Chelsea, London.
The Gallery will commission four new artworks over the next two years for different spaces within Tessa Jowell Health Centre, with the aim of enhancing the healing environment. Each round will begin with an open call where submissions of interest will be reviewed by a diverse panel of judges. Following the initial competition stage, the winning artist will work with the Gallery and TJHC to develop and deliver their design.
Launched today, the first commission invites expressions of interest from 2D designers and illustrators, for artwork that will adorn TJHC’s glass balustrade at the heart of the reception area. Subsequent commissions will explore the potential for performance, sculpture and digital art to transform other key areas at the Centre.
Artists will be encouraged to take inspiration from Dulwich Picture Gallery’s collection and history as well as the principles which drive its community-led work. A socially engaged approach to the commissions will see the successful artists participating in creative workshops to shape ideas with staff and service users to inform their design.
Jane Findlay, Head of Programme and Engagement at Dulwich Picture Gallery, said:
“This is a chance for artists to participate in a vital community project, work closely with the Gallery’s collection, stories, and ideas, and consider the vital role of art in promoting wellbeing. We hope that this new and inclusive model will go on to inform other health settings across the capital”
This series of commission is part of a pioneering new partnership between Dulwich Picture Gallery and NHS South East London Clinical Commissioning Group, who are working together to promote a community-based, holistic approach to health care and to position TJHC as a leading model of good practice in the national arts and health policy arena. While physical artwork will seek to enhance the healing environment, the Gallery is also instigating a free cross-arts creative programme at the Centre as well as informing a new social prescribing model.

Note: I am not a professional writer but I am inspired every now and again to write down my thoughts. This was a spontaneous idea and as I had an opportunity to share it on this platform, here it is. BTW English is my second language so if you spot an odd way of writing just think that I am not perfect. I hope you enjoy reading it. Let me know your thoughts, please. :)Add a comment

Donnafugata have always exuded a lot of style. A few years ago in London, the winery's owner, José Rallo was giving us a tasting lunch in a smart restaurant in Clerkenwell. The wines were ripe, smooth and well designed. Whilst we tasted, Jose stood up and sang to us acapella. Having already recorded jazz albums in at the Blue Note in New York, this made for a memorable tasting experience.Add a comment

The Dulwich Picture Gallery’s fascinating new exhibition titled “British Surrealism” courts the viewer through an extensive collection of artworks, showing many that predate the accepted Surrealism era. Coursing back centuries, it suggests the British psyche has been long adept at contemplating a certain otherness.Add a comment

The Dulwich Picture Gallery maybe the oldest purpose-built gallery in the world but it’s security systems are still avant-garde. Two of the Dutch master painters masterpieces were removed from their hangings but didn’t leave the gallery grounds as the Met police swept in and scared the robbers off.Add a comment
