Anatomy in the Gallery is an ongoing series of contemporary art exhibitions at IMSS exploring the implications and complications of embodiment. The Museum has showcased these quarterly paired solo and group shows within the context of its historical exhibits and collections since 1998 in order to encourage reflection on the interaction between medicine and the human condition. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.

The IMSS Artist in Residence program provides Chicago-area artists with extended and in-depth access to the artifacts from the collection, studio space within the Museum, and support to present exhibitions that introduce additional perspectives to the institutional depiction of medical history
