Gideon Mendel - The Ward – Revisited
Tue-Sat: 11-6pm; Sun: 12-5pm
The Fitzrovia Chapel is proud to present, The Ward – Revisited by Gideon Mendel. In 1993, Gideon spent a number of weeks photographing the Broderip and Charles Bell wards at the Middlesex Hospital. The Broderip was the first dedicated AIDS ward in London, and was opened in 1987 by Princess Diana.
The Ward – Revisited exhibition will comprise a large-screen video installation of many more and previously unseen images with a specially composed soundtrack, as well as a new short film with interviews of people who appear in the original photographs.
This new exhibition also ties in with Terence Higgins Trust’s 40th anniversary, the photographs for TheWard being originally commissioned as part of their 10th anniversary in 1993.
