Art exhibition: ‘Kill or Cure’

15 May @ 10:00 am - 9 October @ 5:00 pm


Kill or Cure aims to discover and explore how the natural world has informed, inspired, and transformed the medical sciences: how plants, animals, natural substances and resources can be either lethal or life-giving.

At the boundary of art and science, the exhibition is designed to stimulate discussion and debate, showcase exceptional art and ideas, and explore the relationship between art, modern medicine, and the natural world.

Kill or Cure includes 36 contemporary artworks and two installations from 32 artists from around the world. A number of celebrated British and international artists – including Mat Collishaw, Charlotte Verity, Julieta Hanono, Tom Ellis, and Adrien Missika, amongst others, have provided generous loans, with significant artworks and installations exhibited within an iconic place of learning. These artist and major artworks are exhibited in Cambridge – and in many cases in the UK – for the very first time.

In another first, and in the spirit of the Royal Academy’s summer exhibition and Wolfson College’s egalitarian values and inclusive culture, Kill or Cure includes works selected following a competitive Open Call. In the spirit of accessibility and putting ideas first, the exhibition provides an opportunity for younger and emerging artists – as well as students, academics, and people from different fields – to engage in a broad and interdisciplinary dialogue across the arts and sciences.

The exhibition spans classical to conceptual styles, and features diverse media, including painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, installation, collage, video, and digital art.

Many of these works are based on years of development, research, and practice. The result is a treasure trove of ideas and visual responses, informed by creative practice and intuition as well as cutting-edge science and research.

This exhibition is part of Wolfson Explores: Growth, the annual guiding theme which aims to stimulate rich, productive dialogue across interdisciplinary and cultural borders.

10:00am-5:00pm Saturday-Sunday every week, for more information visit our website.
