Juliet Chenery-Robson exhibition on living with ME – opens in Durham on 24 April 2010

From the Northern Echo, 17 April 2010

AN exhibition which sheds light on living with ME will open later this month.




‘A Diagnosis of Exclusion’ features photographs aiming to convey the alienation often felt by people suffering from Myalgic Encephalopathy, a chronic fatigue condition.

The pictures were taken by County Durham artist Juliet Chenery-Robson.

The display will be accompanied by a collection of photographs and videos by artist Rosy Martin, called ‘Too Close to Home? – Holding the Everyday Still’, which portrays aspects of working class suburban social history.

The exhibitions will be at the Durham Light Infantry Museum and Durham Art Gallery, in Aykley Heads, Durham, from next Saturday to Sunday, June 6.

James Lowther, principal arts officer at Durham County Council, said: “It is great to be able to support the development of a County Durham-based artist at the DLI Museum and Durham Art Gallery.

“Juliet is an exceptional photographer and the quality of her work is clearly demonstrated by the fact that an artist of the calibre of Rosy Martin has agreed to exhibit alongside.”

Usual admission charges and opening times apply.
