Additional information

This exhibition and the medical humanities program on which it is based are part of the Harvard Art Museums’ broader commitment to interdisciplinary learning. Now in its sixth year, the Seeing in Art and Medical Imaging program welcomes a cohort of nuclear medicine and radiology residents from Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital to explore questions about human relationships, emotions, beliefs, and opinions through art. The yearlong program is organized around seven themes: narrative, objectivity, embodiment, empathy, power, ambiguity, and care.

Evento continues to run during Winter vacation.
