Anatomy of an Athlete Exhibition (London Olympics 2012)
The Hunterian Museum, at the Royal College of Surgeons’ London was looking to create an art exhibition involving anatomy and sport to run in conjunction with the London Olympics 2012. Needing to find anatomy artists to create artwork for the exhibition they approached The Medical Artists’ Association of Great Britain.
The planned ‘Anatomy of an Athlete Exhibition’ was to be held in the Hunterian Museum and was to be open to the public. The overall theme for contributing artists was ‘exploration of the anatomy and physiology of elite athletics using different media and sporting disciplines, on subjects such as the role played by sports regarding exercise, medicine or surgery’. Joanna Culley as a professional member of the MAA was one of four artists chosen to create original artworks for this exhibition.
