Medical Humanities Tours the Carnegie International

January 31, 2019 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Location and Address

Meet at the Carnegie Museum of Art

4400 Forbes Avenue

(near Craig Street)*

Abstract: The Carnegie International, 57th Edition, 2018 includes 32 artists from across the globe. It asks what it means to be “international” and also explores how bodies of knowledge are constructed and preserved, according to critic Andrew Russeth. Medical humanities colleagues will tour the exhibition to discover what it may tell us about medical humanities themes, for example: naming, representation, classification, and development of biorepositories; rendering the previously invisible visible; collective work; communication and emotional response; the human body, health, and beauty.

 

Students have free admission to the museum with their student ID; all others pay half price this evening.

 

*The group will gather inside the Carnegie Museum of Art near the entrance that is near Craig Street and near the museum’s café.  Specifically, the group will gather in front of artist Mimi Cherono Ng’ok’s image of a white horse.
