Tuesday 12 October 2010 - Friday 22 October 2010
A call to update Henry Wellcome’s curious
collection. Please give us a 'thing' no bigger than your
- Bring us a thing during our great bring-a-thing-athon
- Bring this, bring that, bring the other, just nothing bigger
than your head
- Lend it, gift it, or if you can't bear to part with it, upload
a photo of it
- Snooping is positively encouraged, so tell your friends about
Things. No one should miss this feast for the voyeur!
Browse the calendar to discover the new things we've acquired from the public. Empty at first, the calendar will fill up with things during the course of the exhibition. Navigate between months using the links, and click on individual things to discover more.
If you can't get to Wellcome Collection to bring us your thing, or simply can't bear to part with it, you can add a picture of it it to our Things Flickr pool.
Follow the progress of Things from the gallery floor on the Wellcome Collection blog.
While you're choosing a thing to bring, take a look at what others have chosen and why.
Bring us a thing, lend us a thing, gift us a thing... but please read the small print first.
In exchange for your thing you will be invited to the private
view on Tuesday 19 October, 19.00-21.30.
Bring us an object between 12-19 October
(except Monday 18 October)
Collect your object between 6pm on 21 October
and 6pm on 23 October
Come and see everyone else's objects any time between 12-22
October (except Monday 18 October)
THIS NEW EXHIBITION WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT
Henry Wellcome was one of the world's greatest
collectors. On display in 'Medicine Man' in Wellcome Collection you will
find more than 500 objects from his original collection of over
one-and-a-half million, spanning centuries and continents.
Please note that we are building a finite collection. Once
the display structure is full and the collection is complete, an
announcement will be made to confirm object drop-off is closed. We
will still be interested in seeing your things so please
bring them in to show the team or upload a photograph, and
follow the collection's progress on our website.
