Mad for it: Bedlam comes to the Old Vic Tunnels

Collaborative projects between Lazarides Gallery and the Old Vic Tunnels have previously been a bit scary and their project to accompany this year’s Frieze Art Fair is no different. From October 9-21, Bedlam will explore that oft-traversed thin line between genius and madness. The infamous Bethlam hospital for the clinically insane developed into the term Bedlam and the exhibition looks at the modern perceptions of the word, which range between the brutality of mental asylums to a state of chaos. HTC will provide audiobooks and a selection of the artwork will have been created with HTC devices. Should be crazy… Victoria Gray
