Our new permanent gallery opening in autumn 2019 will explore trust, identity and health in a changing world.
Being Human will explore what it means to be human in the 21st century. Divided into four sections, Genetics, Minds & Bodies, Infection, and Climate Breakdown, the new display will present around 50 artworks and objects that reflect our hopes and fears about new forms of medical knowledge, and our changing relationships with ourselves, each other and the world.
Artists whose works will be on display include Yinka Shonibare, Deborah Kelly, Katherine Araniello, Kia LaBeija, Superflex, Onaman Collective, Cassils, and Tasha Marks | AVM Curiosities. Alongside their work will sit objects such as a gene-editing kit, the Zimbabwe Friendship Bench and the Accessible Icon Project.
