Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory: Visions of the Afterlife in the Catholic Tradition

This exhibition explores Catholic visions of heaven, hell, and purgatory—via art, artifacts, and material culture drawn from The Green-Wood Historic Fund Collections and the greater Morbid Anatomy community—tracing how they have manifested in various places and shifted and changed over time.

Morbid Anatomy was created as a blog by Joanna Ebenstein in support of a photo exhibition in 2007. Since then, it has expanded to include the Morbid Anatomy Library, lectures, exhibitions, classes, spectacles, symposia, field trips, books, parties, and films.

It is best known for its brief incarnation as the critically acclaimed Morbid Anatomy Museum (2013-2016), co founded by Ebenstein with Tracy Hurley Martin in Brooklyn, New York.

Today, Morbid Anatomy is overseen by its founder and creative director Joanna Ebenstein and programming director and head librarian Laetitia Barbier, and continues its activities with a variety of partners and venues such as Green-wood Cemetery, where it has taken up residence in a 19th century historic gatehouse, and Hauser and Wirth Gallery.
