Exhibition Explores the Art and Science of Cancer—and the Hope of a Future Without It, Antonia Mufarech, δημοσίευση Smithsonian MagazineMarilena Pateraki
Cancer impacts many lives—in 2020, it accounted for almost one in six deaths worldwide. In the United States alone, the American Cancer Society estimates, there will be around 1.9 million people diagnosed with cancer this year.
Given cancer’s ubiquity, you might be surprised to learn that there aren’t many exhibitions discussing the topic. “Cancer Revolution: Science, Innovation and Hope,” which opened at the Science Museum in London on Wednesday, aims to change that.
The free exhibition explores the treatment and understanding of cancer throughout the years, including personal accounts, artworks and over 100 objects—some of which have never been on display before.
Created by the Science Museum Group in collaboration with Cancer Research UK, the display aims to highlight the stories of people affected by cancer and those who study and treat it, revealing their resiliency and hope. “Cancer Revolution” also investigates how the disease has been treated over the years, from the discovery of chemotherapy drugs to high-risk surgeries, and explores the important challenges that must still be solved to help current and future patients—and one day, eliminate cancer for good.
