The Way My Body Feels: An exhibition and British Medical Journal Podcast

The Way My Body Feels examines the links between objects, art, and medicine to reflect on the ancient and contemporary body.

It is on show in the temporary exhibition space in the Hadrian’s Wall Gallery of the Great North Museum: Hancock until 1 January 2023.

The exhibition is a result of a collaboration between artist and researcher Dr Olivia Turner and Classical archaeologist Dr Sally Waite, both from Newcastle University. It documents a series of experimental workshops with students to consider the links between objects, art, and medicine.

The British Medical Journal’s Medical Humanities podcast episode ‘Body Talk: “Corporeal Pedagogies”’ is available to listen to here. This episode features Sally and Olivia talking to BMJ Medical Humanities Editor-in-Chief, Brandy Schillace, about this research in more depth.
