Art and creativity inspired by Anatomy and Science
Opening tomorrow is the new exhibition at the Wellcome Collection, Euston, London: Death, A Self-portrait (15 November 2012 – 24 February 2013).
I attended the Private view last night to get a provisional glimpse of the exhibition assembled by Richard Harris (the main contributor of works to the exhibition).
“the collection is spectacularly diverse, including art works, historical artefacts, scientific specimens and ephemera from across the world. Rare prints by Rembrandt, Dürer and Goya will be displayed alongside anatomical drawings, war art and antique metamorphic postcards; human remains will be juxtaposed with Renaissance vanitas paintings and twentieth century installations celebrating Mexico’s Day of the Dead” [from the site]
You can see a comprehensive selection of the artworks in the exhibition here.
