Blood & Bones: Living With Cancer10/03/2019
‘Blood & Bones: Living With Cancer’ opened on 28th February at UCLH The Street Gallery on Euston Road. AICA member Marq Smith is the curator of this photography exhibition by the artist Tom Corby (who is also Associate Dean of Research at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design) that explores ways for patients living with cancer to take ownership of their medical data in ways that are affirmative and empowering. The exhibition is funded by Macmillan, and is accompanied by a freely available catalogue (for which Marq has written a substantial essay) that is being distributed widely to cancer charities and patient networks, plus an extensive public engagement programme including artist and curator talks, and workshops at UCLH and the Wellcome Collection. There’s also an event entitled ‘The Human, Data, and Exhibitionary Cultures’ at UCL Institute of Education with contributions from artists, academics, patient advocates, and healthcare and public engagement professionals; plus a special preview screening of New York-based Lana Lin’s ‘The Cancer Journals Revisited’. The exhibition runs until Tuesday 28th May, and is open 24/7.
