Medicine Now

Consider your relationship to health as contemporary artists respond to major themes in medicine

This exhibition presents a range of ideas about science and medicine since Henry Wellcome's death in 1936. It reflects the experiences and interests of scientists, doctors and patients.

Within the huge field of medicine this exhibition attempts to focus on only a few topics: the body, genomes, obesity and living with medical science. Each is explored through a range of exhibits from science and everyday life, as well as artistic responses to the issues presented in red 'art cubes'.

The exhibition features work by Luke Jerram, John Isaacs, Ellie Harrison and from The Institute of Plastination.

This exhibition is free. See opening hours. Some non-flash photography is permitted in this exhibition. See our photography policy.
