Works will also include some never before seen in public anatomical prints from the Hunterian collection and paintings in oil and canvas by major names from Scotland and internationally renowned artists.

The exhibition explores the varied ways in which artists have evoked bodily experiences, often in response to the impacts of technology, spirituality or mortality.

Ned McConnell, Curator, RIA, said: “We are excited to be announcing Flesh Arranges Itself Differently in collaboration with The Hunterian.

"The exhibition explores how both collections can offer perspectives on the ways we have developed an understanding of our bodies. Bodies can be strange things to inhabit and this has been heightened during the current global health crisis.

"The exhibition thinks through how we connect with our bodies in relation to their materiality through The Hunterian’s works, and how we relate to the outside world with our bodies through works from the David and Indrė Roberts Collection.”
