“Artefacts & Experiences:
Reframing Narratives across Medicine and Health”
22 Oct – 7 Nov 2014
Manchester Central Library, Floor 1
Unveiling the exciting potential for the intersections between arts, medicine, health, and technology, the exhibition contains cabinets of selected artefacts from the University of Manchester’s Medicine and Health collections, and showcases a project with hearing-loss participants, “Silence of the Photograph”. Anatomy Projects’ beautiful portrait photography, created with a Victorian Camera, is a linking thread between lived experiences of medicine and health, and its technologies and artefacts.
Curated by Dr. Jenna C. Ashton, in collaboration with Anatomy Projects (Gavin Parry & David Penny), Ms. Sheila Fidler, and the Museum of Medicine and Health.
With thanks to the 26 hearing loss participants, students on the Audiology Healthcare Science BSc, Graham Jones, and Manchester Central Library. The exhibition is dedicated to the memory of the late Professor John Pickstone (The Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine, UoM).
