Body Of Work: Excavating History at the International Museum of Surgical Science
For BODY OF WORK, I created an exhibition at the International Museum of Surgical Science. (The museum is housed in the historic Contiss Mansion.) My projects engaged with the exhibits throughout the museum, including a large installation in response to one of their main exhibitions, "The Hall of Immortals." I also invited artists who have worked with me on other Excavating History Projects to participate. Twelve artists created sculpture, performances, video, sound installations, literary works, and programming inspired by the history of medicine; our own relationship to healers; and the historic mansion itself.
The portfolio to the side is my work in the exhibition.
Reviews and articles were featured in Hyperallergic, Time Out Chicago,The Visualculturist, and ,Praeterita and MutualArts featured interviews with me about my work with all the Excavating History projects.
