A Picture of Health
London LASER presents an evening of talks and discussion exploring the relationships between art, health and medical research.
This event brings together artists, curators, scientists, and healthcare professionals to discuss a diverse set of practices where art and heath intersect. Topics for discussion will include the commissioning of art in a healthcare setting, the ethical implications for artists working directly with personal medical experience, and collaborative processes between artists and scientists investigating contemporary medical research.
Speakers include artist Susan Aldworth, art consultant Nikki Crane; Jenna Stevens-Smith (Head of Communications and Engagement) and Lucy Brown (creative producer) from the Medical Research Council (London Institute of Medical Sciences), and participating artists and scientists from A Picture of Health project.
The event is free but booking is required.
