As part of the Bath Centre for Pain Research's 10-year anniversary celebrations, we have teamed up with 44AD artspace in Bath to produce a collaborative exhibition that brings together pain science and contemporary art.

We have invited associated artists to contribute to the exhibition, which seeks to explore the very nature of pain, and how it is represented through art. We want open a conversation with the local community, as well as visitors to the city, about pain – especially the impact it has on us all - and showcase the work we do.

The Bath Centre for Pain Research was established in 2010. It's made up of a dedicated team of researchers exploring how pain affects us, and the lives we live. Our goal is to better understand the mechanisms, function and impact of pain, and to develop more effective ways to manage it.

Our research covers many themes. These include how people think, feel and express their pain; as well as the different social settings in which pain occurs, including family, healthcare, and work settings.

The exhibition is funded through the University of Bath’s Public Engagement Unit.

Attending the exhibition

The exhibition is free and open seven days a week from 29 September 2021 - 10 October 2021.
