Artist talks and tour of works - with Sarah Maloney Knitted Anatomy and Lisa Nilsson Tissue Series

3 March, 2015, 7:00pm


Lectures and artist talks begin at 7PM | FREE ADMISSION 

Anyone who is interested in the intertwined histories of art and science, medical representation, the philosophy of science, the concept of nature and the body, the theory of art, the role of illustration in art history and the history of the book, the application of crafting techniques within contemporary art, the place of vision in biomedical research, the epistemology of drawing, theories of the imagination, anatomical dissection and anatomy labs, semiotics, aesthetics, and the optics of science (among many other related topics) will need to come to this copiously illustrated, and fascinating set of talks at the Dalhousie Art Gallery. Taken together, these talks point toward an understanding of the history and practices within biomedicine and anatomy, to which both the contemporary art and historical materials featured in Anatomica belong.

Biomedical Visions is held in conjunction with the exhibition Anatomica featuring contemporary art, historical anatomical atlases and medical models. 

Anatomica runs through to Sunday 9 March 2015

Curated by Cindy Stelmackowich

Lyn Carter, Maura Doyle, Garry Neill Kennedy, Kaisu Koski, Maskull Lasserre, Lucy Lyons, Sarah Maloney, Lisa Nilsson, Howie Tsui
