Exhibition dates June 2 - July 18, 2013
Curators Jeanne Brasile and Lisbeth Murray divided the 2,000 sq. ft. gallery in half, creating two separate exhibitions of artwork inspired by cellular forms. The curators seek art that addresses a wide range of topics related to cellular forms to create a discursive exploration into microorganisms and concerns derived from their study.
Death Under Glass Exhibition - The Mutter Museum
Death Under Glass is an exhibition of photomicrographs,
or magnified images of human tissue, generated from
post-mortem. Although contemporary depictions of death
investigation remain popular, little or no worth is given to
the utility of histology in autopsy pathology.
Death Under Glass seeks both to educate viewers about
the role of microscopy in the practice of forensic pathology
and to allow visitors to appreciate histological images for
their brilliant colors and captivating cellular morphology.
Generated by a medical examiner and forensic
photographer, the exhibition offers a rare view
through the microscope to promote contextual '
understanding of histological analysis.
