These web pages are the catalogue of hygiene - the art of public
health, a major exhibition and intervention by artists into
the Keppel Street building of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical
Medicine (LSHTM). The e-catalogue has now been updated with images.
The artworks in this exhibition, curated by Tony Fletcher of LSHTM
and Pam Skelton of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design,
focus on interpretations and responses to 'hygiene' by some of Britain's
most exciting artists. These works explore relationships not only
with the research undertaken at the LSHTM, but its architecture,
history and collections. The exhibition provides the opportunity
to consider hygiene through the lens of visual artists in an institution
dedicated to medical research and public health.

The links below the artists' names lead to pages with background
information about the exhibition and other parts of the LSHTM contemporary
arts programme. This includes a text reflecting on Hygiene
and Danger written by Val Curtis
and Rachel Clarke, researchers into hygiene and infectious disease
at the School.
Previous exhibitions have included shows of students work
