Labyrinth of Living Exhibits considers issues around the historical representation of disabled people within medical contexts.  Visitors will be invited to explore the Hunterian's collections and within the gallery will find four 'living exhibits'.  These 'living exhibits' will be performances by  disabled artists commissioned expressly to respond to the museum's permanent collection of specimens and curiosities:
  • Aaron Williamson
  • Sinéad O'Donnell
  • Brian Catling
  • Katherine Araniello
Artists Aaron Williamson and Katherine Araniello will then join a panel discussion with Sam Alberti, Director of Hunterian, and chaired by the BBC's science correspondent Richard Hollingham, will follow the gallery performances.  The panel will discuss the historical representation of disability and contemporary approaches taken by the medical community.  It will focus on how today's medical training views and engages with disabled people.
