Join us for an Audio Described tour of the exhibition Jo Spence and Oreet Ashery: Misbehaving Bodies. One of our Visitor Experience Assistants, trained in Audio description techniques by VocalEyes, will guide you through the exhibition highlighting some of the artworks on show.

Influential photographer Jo Spence’s (1934–92) work documents her diagnosis of breast cancer and subsequent healthcare regime throughout the 1980s. Her raw and confrontational photography will be shown alongside Oreet Ashery’s (b. 1966) award-winning miniseries ‘Revisiting Genesis’, 2016, which explores death and dying in the digital era. And, in October 2019, a new commission by Ashery exploring the recent death of her father will be added.

In this exhibition, challenge your understanding of ‘misbehaving’ or ‘untypical’ bodies, and reflect on how illness can disrupt and shape the way you think about the body, family and identity.

Places are free but limited. Visitors are asked to book in advance either by email at [email protected] or by giving Wellcome Collection a call on 020 7611 2222.
