Cabinet of Curiosities: How Disability Was Kept in A Box ~ Mat Fraser and Research Centre for Museums and Galleries, University of Leicester

Critically acclaimed actor and performance artist Mat Fraser was commissioned by the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries at the University of Leicester to create a new artistic work, shaped out of a collaborative engagement with museum collections, research and expertise in medical history, museums and disability. This was a key part of the Stories of a Different Kind project (July 2012 – Feb 2014). Cabinet of Curiosities: How Disability was kept in a box reassessed the ways in which disability and disabled people are portrayed in museums.
