There will also be a final tour of the exhibition by co-curators Evan Michelson (TV’s Oddities) and Joanna Ebenstein (Morbid Anatomy Museum Creative Director); music by DJ in residence Friese Undine; traditional mourning foods by Rachel Ridout and wax sealed traditional mourning biscuits by funeral director Amy Cunningham; mourning film clips curated by David Cory and Meg Moseley; as well as complimentary drinks and snacks.
