  • Our free exhibition will bring together two artists who explore the representation of chronic illness and reclaim the idea of ‘misbehaving bodies’.

    Influential photographer Jo Spence’s (1934–92) work documents her diagnosis of breast cancer and subsequent healthcare regime throughout the 1980s. Her raw and confrontational photography will be shown alongside Oreet Ashery’s (b. 1966) award-winning miniseries ‘Revisiting Genesis’, 2016, which explores death and dying in the digital era. And in October 2019, a new commission by Ashery exploring the recent death of her father will be added.

    In this exhibition, challenge your understanding of ‘misbehaving’ or ‘untypical’ bodies, and reflect on how illness can disrupt and shape the way you think about the body, family and identity.

    Closed Monday. Open until 9.00 on Thursday
