The exhibition at the City Arts Centre on Market Street continues until the 8th of July 2018.

Each painting in ‘The Human Comedy’ series by James Pryde (1866-1941) depicts a facet of the human condition. From the series, this exhibition features ‘The Red Bed’ (1916) from the City of Edinburgh collection, alongside work from Lothian Health Services Archive and the Alt-w Fund.

Exploring the activity and research interests of the Department of Clinical Neuroscience in Edinburgh, Susana Cámara Leret, Tomoko Hayashi, Stacey Hunter, Gavin Inglis, Jack King-Spooner, Alex Menzies, Aidan Moesby, Florence To and Sven Werner also present their work.

The legacy of Scottish neurosurgeon Prof Norman Dott (1897-1973) guides the exhibition. Originally an engineer, he retrained in medicine following a long spell in hospital recovering from a motorcycle accident. He constantly innovated with respect to his designs for neuroscience.

Curated by Ginkgo Projects, the exhibition forms part of NHS Lothian’s Art & Therapeutic Design programme funded by the Edinburgh and Lothians Health Foundation. The Alt-w LAB at the City Art Centre has hosted a series of fellowships and residencies as part of this programme. Find out more about the residencies here.
