A Day-Long Symposium Devoted to the Curious Intersections of Art and Death

This day-long symposium is dedicated to the intersections of art and death to celebrate the publication of Death: A Graveside Companion, edited and curated by Morbid Anatomy creator, Joanna Ebenstein, and featuring largely unseen artworks from The Richard Harris death collection. Presenters will include medical historian, Michael Sappol; Evan Michelson of Obscura Antiques and the TV series Oddities; hair artist and art historian, Karen Bachmann; filmmaker, Eva Aridjis; photographer, Shannon Taggart; Bruce Goldfarb of Baltimore's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner; medical illustrator, Marie Dauenheimer; Morbid Anatomy's Joanna Ebenstein and Laetitia Barbier; and more. Talks, screenings, and show-and-tells will span Edgar Allen Poe and the beautiful corpse, the allure of Victorian hair art, death in Mexico, The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death, spiritualism, medical models, and the history of the guillotine.

Books will be available at a special discounted rate, and authors will be on hand to sign; lunch will be provided and refreshments to follow. This symposium is organized and presented in partnership with Joanna Ebenstein and Laetitia Barbier of Morbid Anatomy Library.
