At the invitation of the Head of School of Medicine and Vice Provost for Medical Affairs, Professor Dermot Kelleher, the RHA selected eleven artists to work with various, clinicians, researchers and technicians throughout the Medical School. Artists identified such areas as neuroscience, anatomy, psychiatry and social medicine in which to conduct their research and develop their response. In all cases generous access was afforded to artists to laboratories and research areas and in some cases close collaboration developed between the artists and the clinicians.
The exhibition aims to create stimulating and aesthetically successful artworks that will challenge and engage the public in issues of medical research and art practice.
The exhibition has been made possible through additional support of the Trinity Foundation.
