This event requires registration; see further details below.
Join curators Jen Thum and Laura Muir for a tour of the exhibition Seeing in Art and Medicine, on view from September 2 to December 30, 2023. Thum and Muir will share insights about the museums’ medical humanities program for radiologists—on which the exhibition is based—the curatorial process, 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 big human questions and try your hand at close-looking activities in an interactive setting.
Jen Thum, Associate Director of Academic Engagement and Campus Partnerships and Research Curator
Laura Muir, Interim Director of Academic and Public Programs and the Louis Miller Thayer Research Curator
