Event description

Description

4 – 5.30pm University of Bristol, 35 Berkeley Square, Helen Wodehouse Lecture Theatre
5.30 – 7pm Bristol Museum & Art Gallery - exhibition visit and drinks reception

Leonardo's anatomical drawings, three of which are included in the exhibition Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing, have long been a source of fascination, not least because they represent an ability to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. This event, jointly organised by the University of Bristol and Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, presents a range of responses to these drawings. Speakers from History of Art, Applied Anatomy, Medical Humanities and from the Museum will individually address themes which resonate with their own disciplinary perspectives, as well as exploring the opportunities and challenges of working across the boundaries of art and medicine.

The seminar is followed by an opportunity to visit the exhibition at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, see some art work by Medical Humanities students, and continue discussions over a free glass of wine.

Please note the event is not suitable for under 15s.

Contributors include:

Peter Dent (History of Art, University of Bristol)
Craig Johnson (Centre for Applied Anatomy, University of Bristol)
Catherine Lamont-Robinson (School of Social and Community Medicine, University of Bristol)
Genevieve Liveley (Classics, University of Bristol)

Event generously supported by the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute.
