About Art Commissions
HUMAN RACE COMMISSIONED ART AND ARTISTS
An exciting aspect of the exhibition is the inclusion of contemporary art, which have been curated by Prof. Andrew Patrizio. Four Scottish based artists: Kona Macphee; Catherine Street; Beverley Hood; Louise Menmuir were commissioned to introduce creative voices and a contemporary perspective to the rich material and themes of the exhibition.
Each of artists found their own points of interest and stories which they expressed through their individual projects. Their work offers alternatives to the conventions of sport science and medicine, and shows this highly visible subject through a wider emotional lens. Through the art projects we hope to encourage audiences to explore their own reactions to the objects and themes of the Human Race exhibition.
