    Exceptional & Extraordinary

    Exceptional & Extraordinary invited four artists to explore behind the scenes of eight of the UK’s renowned medical museums and – in collaboration with experts in medical history, disability and museums – to produce a series of thought-provoking new commissions that examine our attitudes towards difference with the aim of stimulating debate around the implications of a society that values some lives more than others.
