There’s a lot to be worried about at the moment. The Science Gallery, a relatively new addition to London’s museum scene, is opening an exhibition to explore anxiety in 21st-century life, looking at causes and what the future of mental health looks like. The show draws on cutting edge research by the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London, and combines it with personal experiences from the perspective of artists, scientists, young people and patients.
We all experience anxiety to some extent during our lives.
From 19 September, our new exhibition and events season, ON EDGE: Living in an Age of Anxiety, will explore creative and positive responses to our anxious times.
ON EDGE will consider different personal experiences of anxiety, how the world around us can cause worry or stress, and our evolutionary impulse to be on edge.
Drawing on cutting-edge mental health research from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London, the season reflects the perspectives of artists, scientists, young people and patients.
The exhibition includes several new commissions developed by artists with researchers from King’s. Leah Clements will explore the relationship between sleep and anxiety in a new sound and moving image artwork developed with Dr Guy Leschziner from the Sleep Disorder Centre at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital.
Alice May Williams will create bold new paintings inspired by the colours and language of football, while Benedict Drew will express the subjective experience of anxiety through sound and light.
Rooted in research into depersonalisation and derealisation disorders (DPD) and conversations with service users from the Maudsley Hospital in south London, Sarah Howe presents Consider Falling, a sculptural installation. Harold Offeh will work with patients at the Bethlem Royal Hospital and the charity Hospital Rooms to create a new series of patterns and designs incorporated into the architecture of Science Gallery London.
“King’s College London is home to outstanding mental health research, including on the causes and effects of anxiety,” said Professor Thalia Eley, Professor of Developmental Behavioural Genetics at King’s and ON EDGE Season Advisor. “This season brings new perspectives to a phenomenon that affects so many of us. ON EDGE invites visitors to reflect on their own wellbeing in a wider context.”
“The exhibition takes as its starting point that we all experience anxiety at some point in our lives,” said curator-producer Mette Kjærgaard Præst. “We aim to open up a critical conversation about the causes of and responses to anxiety in contemporary society. ON EDGE makes visible the possible connections between individual experiences and the wider societal conditions that frame them.”
A project by Cian McConn will work with the Science Gallery London Mediators to compile an ongoing list of words related to topics that we are not usually encouraged to talk about in public. These words will be printed on T-shirts worn by Mediators in the Gallery, inviting visitors to start a conversation. McConn will also present a new audio work, Some people have no shoes, based on observations of other people’s difficult situations.
ON EDGE also considers how our noisy and uncertain world affects our wellbeing as a society. In the 3D animation Bellona (after Samuel R. Delany), Ann Lislegaard draws on Delany’s cult sci-fi novel, Dhalgren, to investigate how the urban environment affects our psychological state.
Notes on Humiliation by Cally Spooner is a series of posters based on interviews with Dr Isabel Valli during her time at the IoPPN. The posters explore the historical diagnosis of ‘hysteria’ and how the term has resurfaced in politics and everyday language today.
POST-SURVEILLANCE ART, a series of posters by Suzanne Treister, navigates new technology and what we assume to be true, questioning what it means to ‘share’ in the digital age.
Throughout the season, the Gallery will host a space for visitors to think about and share the ways we react to and experience anxiety. This will be designed by Resolve Collective and our Young Leaders, a group of 15-25-year olds who live, work or study at King’s or in the neighbouring boroughs of Southwark and Lambeth.
“Across King’s College London, researchers are developing new and imaginative thinking on the issues that really matter,” said Deborah Bull, Vice President & Vice-Principal (London) and Senior Advisory Fellow for Culture at King’s College London. “At Science Gallery London, we bring scientists together with artists to provoke new perspectives on some of the world’s greatest challenges and connect in innovative ways between the university and communities across London and beyond.”
A programme of free events, including talks, workshops and Friday Lates will continue the conversation around anxiety in contemporary society.
John O’Shea, Head of Programming at Science Gallery London, said: “We hope that visitors to the exhibition will be engaged by the questions posed, and, through the creative strategies of the artists, feel empowered to have bold discussions about the experience of anxiety within contemporary society.”

Eleftheria Arvanitaki performs her mix of traditional, rebetiko and Asia Minor influences with contemporary influences from Greece and the Mediterranean
Η Ελευθερία Αρβανιτάκη είναι μια σπουδαία Ελληνίδα ερμηνεύτρια που προσμετρά 30 και πλέον χρόνια πορείας στο ελληνικό τραγούδι. Έχει συνεργαστεί με κορυφαίους Έλληνες, αλλά και ξένους δημιουργούς, έχει ταξιδέψει την μουσική της και την μουσική της χώρας της κυριολεκτικά στις πέντε Ηπείρους πραγματοποιώντας εμφανίσεις σε ιστορικά θέατρα και φεστιβάλ όχι μόνο στην Ελλάδα αλλά και στην υφήλιο.
Στην προσωπική της δισκογραφία της συγκαταλέγονται άλμπουμ που έχουν σφραγίσει το σύγχρονο ελληνικό τραγούδι. Έχει μια σταθερή σχέση με την παράδοση, το ρεμπέτικο και το σμυρνέικο τραγούδι από το ξεκίνημα της καριέρας της με την Οπισθοδρομική Κομπανία και πάντα συμπεριλαμβάνει την παράδοση στον ήχο και το ρεπερτόριο των ζωντανών της εμφανίσεων. Από την άλλη, το μοναδικό της ηχόχρωμα της επιτρέπει να ερμηνεύει μοναδικά και τραγούδια δυτικότροπα – άλλωστε η φωνή της έχει χαρακτηριστεί πολλές φορές σταυροδρόμι Ανατολής και Δύσης.
Συνεχίζει ακούραστη να μας ταξιδεύει στις παραστάσεις της στην Ελλάδα και όχι μόνο και μετά από την αξέχαστη συναυλία της στο Southbank τον Μάιο του 2017, επιστρέφει στο Λονδίνο τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2019 με μια μοναδική συναυλία στο Barbican Centre, στα πλαίσια του Dynata Tour 2019 που παρουσίασε σε Γερμανία, Ολλανδία, Βέλγιο, Σουηδία και Ισπανία. Στο Barbican Centre έχει εμφανιστεί και στο παρελθόν σε προσωπική της συναυλία τον Οκτώβριο του 2008 και παλιότερα το 2002, αλλά και σε συνεργασία με τον Philip Glass για το project του Orion το 2004.
Η Ελευθερία Αρβανιτάκη επιστρέφει στο Barbican 24 Σεπτεμβρίου – εσύ θα λείπεις;

Sunday October 6th | Doors: 7pm
“Ypogeia Revmata” (free translation: “The Undertows”) is among the most prominent and long lasting bands of the Greek rock scene. Having been around for more than 25 years, during which they have been constantly active, they continue to travel through space and time transforming images, thoughts and feelings into words and music.
The band was formed in 1992 in Kallithea, Athens. Their first album “O magos koitazei tin poli” was recorded in the fall of 1994 and became an instant classic. Between then and the present day the band has recorded 8 studio albums, 2 live shows recordings and has collaborated with many Greek artists and bands.
Over the years the band’s formation has changed a few times and a total of 14 members have participated in the band, all of them being good friends until this day. Today “Ypogeia Revmata” is a trio consisting of Grigoris Klioumis, founding member in the vocals and electric guitar, Nikos Giousef in the bass and musical saw and Tassos Peppas in the drums.
