About the event

Elite sport, surgery and medical art.

The Hunterian Museum has worked with the Medical Artists’ Association of Great Britain to generate new artworks that explore the anatomy and physiology of elite athletics. Ranging across different media and sporting disciplines, the artists illustrate the key role played by sports and exercise medicine, and surgery in particular.

Find out about the latest techniques in orthopaedic surgery, innovative developments in prosthetics and the importance of training to muscle development. World-leading medical artists Joanna Culley, Emily Evans, Richard Neave/Denise Smith and Catherine Sulzmann have used have used a variety of art-forms including watercolour, video and sculpture to represent a selection of sports and para-sports. Their art provides a unique opportunity to study in detail the best of British at running, hurdling, canoeing and hockey.

This dynamic exhibition will be accompanied by a series of events over the summer.
