London’s premiere health-focussed gallery and museum, the Wellcome Collection, is set to open the doors on a brand new permanent gallery in early September.
Being Human is set to “explore trust, identity and health in a changing world,” through a brand new commission by Yinka Shonibare, and work from the likes of Tamsin van Essen, Superflex, and Tasha Marks.
The space has been designed by Turner-winning architectural collective Assemble.
It’ll be split into four sections — Genetic, Minds & Bodies, Infection, and Environmental Breakdown — and is set to feature around 50 objects and artworks that the Wellcome Collections claims “reflect our hopes and fears about new forms of medical knowledge to our changing relationships with ourselves, each other and the world.”
The new gallery will open its doors to the public on 6 September. As ever, admission will be free.
