Our picture may be somewhat skewed as a result of compulsive viewing of various TV crime series but, every which way you carefully inspect it, forensics is a damn cool use of science. This exhibition of original evidence, archival material, photographs, film footage, specimens, forensic implements and artworks will look at the history, art and science of forensic medicine. Exploring the area where law and medicine cross over, it promises to reveal the truth behind some of the myths perpetuated by crime dramas. 'Forensics' will be the first exhibition in Gallery 1 at the Wellcome Collection since its £17.5 million development.
