Spit Spreads Death

On May 19 Blast Theory’s Matt Adams will join Trevor Smith, Curator of the Present Tense of the Peabody Essex Museum and Jane Boyd, Independent Historical Curator, to talk about their upcoming exhibition Spit Spreads Death at Philadelphia’s Mutter Museum.

In discussion on the exhibition’s unique partnering of contemporary art and medical history, the panel will give insight into the process of interpreting the phenomenon of pandemic for modern audiences.

How are history researchers thinking like artists, artists like museum curators, and can how art engage an audience to create a simulated community in the throes of the worst pandemic the world has experienced?

The event will stream live from 10.30pm – 12.30am GMT and 6:30pm – 8.30pm EDT on the Mutter Museum Facebook page. You can watch the discussion after the event on the Blast Theory YouTube page.
