Gallery Talk: Seeing in Art and Medicine
Wednesday, Sept. 13 join curator Jen Thum for an exploration of works in the exhibition "Seeing in Art and Medicine," on view from Sunday, Sept. 2 to Saturday, Dec. 30. Thum will share insights about the museums’ medical humanities program for radiologists—on which the exhibition is based—and what can be gleaned through close looking. "Seeing in Art and Medicine" invites visitors to consider the medical program’s themes of narrative, objectivity, embodiment, empathy, power, ambiguity and care through works from across the collections. Explore with big human questions and close-looking activities in an interactive setting. Tours are limited to 18 people. Registration is required and opens online, beginning at 10am the day of the talk.
