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.

"Between Medical Collections and Their Audiences” (EAMHMS  Congress, London, September 4th – 6th 2014)

Death Under Glass was pleased to presnt the following poster at the 2014  European Association of Museums of the History of Medical Sciences Congress (EAMHMS) biennial meeting in London from 4-6 September 2014.


EAMHMS is an active global network of curators, scholars & stakeholders with an interest in medical collections. The biennial Congress is a great opportunity to present research within a vibrant forum of debate and discussion, and promotes international exchange and collaboration amongst medical history museums. The Association, although nominally European, today attracts participation from around the world and is the leading international body of medical museums and collections.



May 6th – 9th DeadSocial ran a pop-up shop to help support Dying Matters Awareness Week. During this week a number of organisations, artists and charities will use the space to address end of life issues, run seminars, workshops and host Death Cafes. The ‘You Only Die Once’ art exhibitionwas presented in the space throughout the week & feature the internationally acclaimed artists:  Sequin Kay & Lauren Baker, Natalie Jackson, Marianne Hamel & Nikki Johnson, Janne Parvianen, Krystle Mickael & Beth Hughes

Cell Mates


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.
