'Music In Detention' by Zbigniev Cedro on display in the Kings Place Music Base reception

This magnificent painting is entitled 'Music In Detention' and was painted in 2008 by Zbigniev Cedro. It is a response to Zbigniev’s experience of Music In Detention’s workshops at Haslar Immigration Removal Centre near Portsmouth, where at the time he was a detainee. The painting features detainees, Music In Detention workshop leaders, uniformed officers, imagined participants, and even a few famous musicians in and amongst the crowd…

It was displayed in the visits hall at Haslar until the Centre’s closure in April 2015, when it was returned to Music In Detention, here at King’s Place.

We are grateful to Kings Place for enabling us to exhibit this wonderful piece of art.
