Diagnostic Arts

September 24 — October 30, 2005

Reception Saturday, September 24, 2005, 6 - 8 p.m.

Diagnostic Arts explores issues surrounding physical and mental health, as well as medical research-both past and present. Artists in this exhibit employ standard diagnostic technology to create art that reflects their personal experiences with illness. X-rays, MRI films and brain scans are some of the materials used to create the photographs, paintings and mixed media works. Included are New England artists, Jane Hesser, Maggie Stark, Richard Yarde, Jennifer Hall, Jo Sandman, as well as New York artist Jeffrey Bishop. "While many works in the exhibition grew out of the artist's personal experience with illness, these personal and expressive statements go far beyond the therapeutic," states Katherine French, Director of the Danforth Museum of Art and curator of the exhibition. Diagnostic Arts debuted at the Montserrat College of Art Gallery, Beverly in February-April 2005, before traveling to the Mass College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences at the Boston's Longwood Medical Center for the summer 2005. The exhibit will be on view at the Danforth Museum of Art September 25-October 30, 2005.
