Claire Barclay in 'William Hunter and the Anatomy of the Modern Museum'

Yale Center for British Art, Connecticut, USA
'William Hunter and the Anatomy of the Modern Museum' is a group exhibition touring to Yale Center for British Art, Connecticut. Taking William Hunter's Tercentenary as its point of departure, this exhibition offers a 21st century perspective on Hunter's Enlightenment project. This exhibition features over three hundred objects from Hunter's original collections, which were donated to the University of Glasgow upon his death. The display also includes works by four contemporary artists-Selva Aparicio, Claire Barclay, Nate Lewis, and Maya Vivas-which explore social and philosophical questions about the worlds of medicine and anatomical dissection. 

William Hunter and the Anatomy of the Modern Museum is collaboration between The Hunterian at the University of Glasgow and the Center. The exhibition was first on display at The Hunterian from September 27, 2018, to January 6, 2019. The guest curator has been Mungo Campbell, Deputy Director of The Hunterian; and the organizing curator at the Center has been Nathan Flis, Head of Exhibitions and Publications, and Assistant Curator of Seventeenth-Century Paintings. They have been assisted by María Dolores Sánchez-Jáuregui, William Hunter Tercentenary Curator at The Hunterian.
