Free Talk: Art and Medical Diagnoses
Disease changes lives…and art. For centuries, art and music have reflected not only contemporary cultural and political themes but also the lives of the artists themselves. For example, medical diagnoses have shaped the way artists perceive and interact with the world, and are expressed in their art. Join Dr. Megan McGill and KnowScience to explore how a pituitary tumor, REM sleep disturbances, prosopagnosia, and syphilis have ultimately had profound impacts on art and music, while explaining the science behind these diagnoses along the way.
Know Science talks aim to be an engaging experience specifically designed for the public to understand science in a fun, accessible, interactive environment, and allow plenty of chances to ask questions during and after the talk over light snacks. Join us!
