The ARC, Glasgow

Rebirth & Revolution celebrates the life and legacy of Mary Barnes (1923-2002) in her centenary year. Barnes was resident at R. D. Laing’s therapeutic community, a radical experiment in anti-psychiatry, at Kingsley Hall from 1965-1970. Her artwork demonstrates the radical potential of creativity to support recovery from mental illness.
