2015 Project: Rubens and His Legacy – Celebrating Life, Death, Legacy and Art
Our annual collaboration with the Royal Academy of Art this year is exploring life, death, legacy and art through a series of displays, talks and workshops, both at St Christopher’s and the Royal Academy of Art in London’s Piccadilly.
Responding to different structures, textures, lighting, scents and colours, some of the big questions about the nature of architecture are considered; how do spaces make us feel? What does architecture do for our lives?
This project captured the views of dying people and those who care for them through the creation of a range of artistic self-portraits using various artistic mediums including photography, quilt making, painting, drawing, creative writing and music making.
Views from the end of life
Between January and March 2012, the Royal Academy of Arts and St Christopher’s Hospice worked on a new dynamic creative arts project.
The project captured the views of dying people and those who care for them through the creation of a range of artistic stories and landscapes.
The project ran alongside a new David Hockney exhibition, shown at the Academy during the same time period. Hockney’s landscapes capture one persons unique view of the same vista at different moments in time.
