Are you intrigued by anatomy and art? Are you interested in (literally) looking inside of yourself? This spring, UChicago Arts will be hosting a multi-venue exhibition entitled Imaging/Imagining that incorporates both the artistic and the scientific history of the body.
This exhibition will be held in various locations across the campus, including the Special Collections Research Center (The Body as Text), the Smart Museum (The Body In Art) and the Crerar Library (The Body as Data). Each space will introduce the history of anatomy in a specialized and organized category. The Body as Text explores the history of medical illustration as well as when the partnership of art and science were separated due to the invention of the x-ray. The Body as Data focuses on modern anatomy and the introduction of computers. The exhibition at the Smart Museum, The Body as Art, focuses on the subjective imagination within the medical illustrations that were once incredibly important for anatomists.
Subsequent events include Lecture: Seeing Into, Seeing through the Promise and Peril of Imaging, The Body in 3D, Family Day: Ultrasounds Exquisite Corpses, and Third Thursday: Drawing the Body with the Body.
The Imaging/Imagining exhibition runs March 25 through June 20. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the UChicago Arts website or call 773-702-2787.
