Academicians in Focus: Timothy Hyman RA

A year with Maggie's

30 April — 22 October 2015

Become a Friend

This exhibition assembles some of the poignant and characterful drawings and paintings resulting from Timothy Hyman’s 60 visits to Maggie’s Centres as part of an artist’s residency from 2011–12.

Maggie’s Centres provide free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends. The first centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996, using a blueprint for cancer care established by Maggie Keswick Jencks before her death in June 1995. Since then the charity has commissioned a sequence of outstanding, modestly-scaled buildings sited alongside NHS hospitals; many being designed by major architects, often without fee.

A moving and sensitive portrayal of the inner life of the centres, this exhibition celebrates those who benefit from them – their gatherings, preoccupations, and individual journeys – and explores the essence of the buildings both spiritually and structurally.

All works are available for sale and a selection can be found in the RA’s online shop. Find out more about Art Sales at the RA, ask at the Membership Desk in the Keeper’s House or call 020 7300 5933 or 020 7300 5741.
