A conversation about the intersection between medicine and the arts.
Monday, June 20, 2005
We're delighted to announce the first ever exhibition of art produced by Imperial College's Medical Humanities students. The work will be on view in the Blyth Gallery, 5th Floor, Sherfield Building, Imperial College London, from 29 June to 11 July 2005. The exhibition is open to the public.
The exhibition is a result of an assignment on the Medical Humanities taught option in the BSc year. Students produced a visual object that engaged with a theme covered in the course, e.g. clinical detachment, mortality, the medical gaze, popular perceptions of medicine. Each work is accompanied by a explanatory commentary. The standard was so impressive that we felt it merited an exhibition.
The photograph shown here is part of a piece by Jenny Eades which explores the doctor/patient relationship.
