Artists as Diagnosticians of Culture

May 8, 2011

This conversational tour with Alan and Sue Bleakley will look at the art of Giuseppe Penone, Paterson Ewen and the contemporary artists in the Inuit Modern exhibition through the lens of ‘artists as diagnosticians of culture’. The event is part of Creating Space, the first national conference on using the arts and humanities in clinical education in Canada. The AGO tour is the first of what will be a number of collaborative initiatives between the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine and the Art Gallery of Ontario aimed at exploring the relationships - both existing and possible - between art and healthcare in our communities. 


Professor Alan Bleakley is professor of Medical Education at Peninsula Medical School, Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, UK.

Sue Bleakley is a visual artist. She has been artists in residence at the Postgraduate Education centre, Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro. She also teaches for the medical school, co-running a Special Study Unit on medicine and visual art.
