About this item
Publication documenting a two-part exhibition focusing on a medical humanities perspective as the bridge between understanding resilience through treatment, care and social action. The first segment examines how visual literary skills are employed by health professionals in order to develop their observational and empathetic skills. The latter segment presents artworks that ponder issues related to trauma, the body, memory, medicine, health and the museum. With work by Michelle Bellemare, Rebecca Belmore, Catherine Heard, Nancy Kembry and Yvonne Singer. The thematic is accentuated through a deliberate scratching and marking on the cover and within the margins of the publication.
