Transplant and Life, a programme of events and commissioned artworks by artists Tim Wainwright and John Wynne, using sound, photography and video to reveal intimate patient experiences, opens at the Qvist Gallery in the Hunterian Museum at the Royal College of Surgeons, London until 20th May 2017.
The Hunterian Museum boasts unrivalled collections of human and non-human anatomical and pathological specimens, models and surgical instruments across the centuries, as well as art and sculpture on the subject of surgery and anatomy. It is open free to all visitors from Tuesday to Saturday, 10AM-5PM.
The Transplant and Life exhibition by Tim Wainwright and John Wynne gives life and voice to patient experiences and aims to raise awareness of the importance of transplantation and some of the challenges surrounding it. Every day three people, who could benefit from a transplant, die in the UK because there are not enough organ donors.
