Transplant and Life

22nd November 2016–20th May 2017

Artists Tim Wainwright and John Wynne, working with transplant patients at the Royal Free and Harefield hospitals, used sound, photography and video to reveal intimate patient experiences and bring the sights and sounds of patients into the museum, a place usually associated with specimens, hardware, and clinical heroes.

This exhibition gave voice to the patient experience and raised awareness of the importance of transplantation and the challenges surrounding it.
