This February, artist Robin Lee and Barts Pathology Museum are inviting visitors to their ‘Alternative-Valentines Show’.
Forget about candied hearts and flowers, confront your mortality, and contemplate what you might rectify before it’s too late, with ‘REGRETS’ – a multi-media exhibition not for the faint hearted.
A highlight of the Alternative Valentine’s Exhibition are special ticketed shows hosted by Lee, with themed canapés and drinks by award winning (Observer Food Monthly 2014) chef Andy Evans, and an integral live music.
Canapes and drinks:
Marinated Ox heart, green bean chutney with pickled walnut.
Parmesan fried artichoke Heart, roasted garlic mayo.
Homemade bloodcake, quails egg and apple sauce.
Salt baked beetroot, braised ox shin, pickled red cabbage and fresh anchovies.
'Special' Bloody Mary served in syringes

Prior to the appointment of Carla Valentine as the current Technical Curator, the museum was in a state of disarray. As medical teaching changed, the need for the study of anatomy and pathology pots declined. Without funding the pots and the infrastructure of the building suffered and it wasn't until a couple of years ago that a donation was secured to renovate the collection. New ways to ensure the survival of the collection were also trialled, including conferences and events.
The Pathology Museum, a part of Queen Mary University of London, is a medical-humanities hub and venue for public engagement and education. Our events showcase research and the arts from our own institution as well as other universities, independant researchers and other museums. Our activities are in accordance with Human Tissue Authority recommendtions on Public Display of medical collections, and the University Museums Group guidance, and are sensitive to the dignity of the collection.
As it is part of Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, the museum is based within St Bartholomews which is a teaching hospital. Therefore, follow the signs for the Robin Brook Centre and go through the open entrance indicated below. You'll find the museum on the 3rd floor:
