Current plans envisage the exhibition to open first at the Wende Museum, Los Angeles, before moving to the new, much expanded exhibition space at Wellcome Collection, London. The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of public engagement events and conference activities.

Further details and exhibition dates will be included here as soon as they are announced.
