An Evening of Imagining Medicine
Join us at The John Rylands Library for a unique opportunity to meet the people behind our Imagining Medicine exhibition, artist Dr Sian Bonnell and art historian Dr Cordelia Warr, together with experts on our Medical Collection.
Sian and Cordelia recruited University of Manchester students to research and re-enact illustrations of surgical procedures from our Medical Collections. Photographed by Dr Bonnell, the images are brought to life in a way that is playful but which also provokes serious thought.
Alongside the compelling photographs, you will be introduced to the practices that made up early modern medicine by experts from the University, as well as having the rare opportunity to view the Medical Collections up-close and discover our striking Library after hours.
