Transplant and Life Exhibition

A programme of events and commissioned artwork exploring organ transplantation.

Artists Tim Wainwright and John Wynne have been working with patients and staff at the Royal Free and Harefield hospitals to explore the experience of transplant recipients and live donors. In the Crystal and Qvist galleries, sound, photography and video will give voice to the patient experience in the context of the medical museum, a place usually associated with specimens, hardware, and clinical heroes.

The exhibition and related programme of events aim to raise awareness of the importance of transplantation and the challenges surrounding it.

A bespoke digital guide will enrich the experience of both visitors and those not able to visit the museum. It provides access to images, sounds, and scientific and historical information not directly available in the galleries and helps visitors explore transplant-related objects in the Hunterian Museum collection.


Exhibition runs Tuesday 22 November 2016 - Saturday 20 May 2017.
