Wellcome Collection’s spring exhibition, ‘Outsider Art from Japan’, will bring together more than 300 works for the first major display of Japanese outsider art in the UK. The 46 artists represented in the show are residents and day patients at social welfare institutions across the main island of Honshu, and they present diverse bodies of work including ceramics, textiles, paintings, sculpture and drawings.

‘Outsider Art from Japan’ runs from 28 March to 30 June 2013 at Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, NW1 2BE. A full programme of events will run alongside the exhibition.
