Death: A Self-Portrait

The exhibition Death: A Self-Portrait starts tomorrow, Thursday 15th November, at the Wellcome Collection in London (near The British Library on Euston Road) and promises to be "a unique collection devoted to the iconography of death and our complex and contradictory attitudes towards it".

Curated by Richard Harris, the exhibition will offer us a "spectacularly diverse" exploration of many various representations of death, "including art works, historical artifacts, scientific specimens and ephemera from across the world". With the prospect of seeing rare pieces from Goya and Rembrandt, as well as my general interest in the subject matter, I'm very much intrigued and will make sure to go! 

Death: A Self-Portrait will be free to visit and it runs until the 24th February 2013.
