Drawing on medicine
A talk by Dr. Ken Arnold of the Wellcome Collection
Wednesday 7 March, 7pm
Dr. Ken Arnold directs the exhibitions and events at Wellcome Collection – London’s free destination for the incurably curious, where medicine, life and art are intriguingly brought together in order to investigate and illuminate aspects of the human condition.
In the context of the current exhibition and James Yamada’s Parasolstice – Winter Light, he will discuss the contemporary intersection of science and art and the inspiration he draws both from the Edwardian collector, philanthropist and entrepreneur Henry Wellcome as well as the earlier tradition of curiosity cabinets (Europe’s first museums), where interdisciplinarity was more a way of life than a fashionable methodology.
