Journeys: The Healing Arts, is a selection of bespoke artworks from the CW+ art collection, commissioned to enhance the environment and improve patient outcomes at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. This is the first time CW+ has exhibited artworks from its collection on this scale to a wider public within a gallery setting.

Featuring comissioned works by the official charity of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (CW+) including: Anouk Mercier, Gary Embury, Lucy Ward, Emily Thomas, Olivier Kugler, Tim King, Carlos Penalver, Accademia, Paolo Estrella, Min Young Kim, James Hope-Falkner, Owen Diplock, Dan Stockmann, Morgan Beringer, Kit Mead, Eda Sarman, Sara Choudhrey, Stateless Studios, Genesis Arts and a never-before-seen digital work by Brian Eno.

Brian Eno, British musician and featured artist, says: “To be part of the CW+ exhibition at Saatchi Gallery is a great honour. For a number of years, I’ve worked with the CW+ team in creating works that provide a positive and calming environment, something that seems vital in a patient’s experience and recovery. My latest work, Midlands, aims to take patients on both a physical and emotional journey, to hopefully relieve some of the anxiety or pain they might be experiencing. It is fantastic to be exhibited in such a splendid gallery alongside so many other wonderful artworks all with a mutual aim of expediting healing through art.”

Laura Uccello, Director of Partnerships at Saatchi Gallery, says: “Working closely with CW+ has allowed Saatchi Gallery to share free access to contemporary art to their wide hospital community. We are delighted to be exhibiting ‘Journeys’ and sharing with our visitors the meaningful impact that the visual arts have on Chelsea Westminster Hospital’s commissioned artists, patients, volunteers and staff members.”

Trystan Hawkins, Arts Director at CW+, says: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Saatchi Gallery to present this unique exhibition. Thanks to our generous supporters, we’re able to work with these incredible artists to transform the hospital experience and environment for our patients, their families and our hardworking staff. I am delighted that for the first time the wider community can now also enjoy these artworks and learn more about our innovative programme of work.”
