Korenberg, M.D., Ph.D., Melissa Lambert, Charles "Chip" McDaniel , M.D., Thomas Morphis, Jeff Ostergren, Kira Vollman Medical/Arts is a parallel exploration of two of our species more noble pursuits; the innate drive to cure the body of disease and palliate physical pain and the equally imperative urge to express our thoughts and feelings through the arts. How do artists view medical practice, science and artifacts? In what ways do medical practitioners find aesthetics manifest in their field? Where are the commonalities? Where the divergences? Is the ancient phrase, “medical arts” a semantic anachronism, made all the more obsolete as technology replaces observation and intuition? Are the observations and intuitions of artists viable portals to an understanding of empirical process? "Medical/Arts" has been made possible by generous grants from The Ellingsen Family Foundation and The Pasadena Art Alliance.
