Local Artists Project

Original artworks, inspired by the Museum and created by four emerging, innovative, local artists.

We commissioned four local artists and invited them to engage with the Museum and its unique history, and to respond by creating an original artwork expressive of their own personal medical history and experiences. In honour of the Museum’s history specifically as a women’s operating theatre, this project aimed to provide a platform for women and non-binary artists, whose voices and experiences have too long been marginalised and problematised in historical and contemporary medical narratives.

Make sure to follow our Meet the Makers campaign on social media to meet the artists and learn the stories behind their work!
