Exhibition in Brighton on how injured soldiers were helped through art
4:30am Friday 18th April 2014 in News
A new exhibition will show how injured soldiers coped with the horrors of war through art.
The exhibition in the University of Brighton cafe foyer will take visitors closer to the past at the Brighton Pavilion Hospital for Limbless Soldiers where, from 1916-1919, more than 6,000 men were admitted for treatment, recuperation and retraining.
The show includes photographs of disabled soldiers in the First World War learning arts and craft skills at the Brighton School of Art as well as extracts from The Pavilion Blues, a journal produced by and for men who shared the experience of losing limbs in the war.
The exhibition also has material from the Royal Pavilion and Museums, Brighton and Hove, and the University of Brighton Design Archive.
