TESTING PANACEA  
             

"PANACEA SUPERSPA" is a radical exhibition by contemporary artists Neil Bromwich, Michael Pinsky and Zoe Walker, which proposes prototypes of artworks that are beneficial to health. These prototypes will be tested for safety and efficacy in scientific trials based on methods used in drug development by the pharamaceutical industry. The results will be presented in a series of lectures given by puppet scientist Professor John Hilary.

Funded by the WELLCOME TRUST
