PICTURING WELLNESS
January 5 – March 26, 2016
OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, January 14, 6 - 8 pm
PANEL DISCUSSION: Thursday, February 25 at 6 pm, full details below
Picturing Wellness is a two-part exhibition with complementary education programming that focuses on a medical humanities perspective as the bridge between understanding resilience through treatment, care and social action.
Picturing Wellness I: From Adversity to Resilience
Visual Literacy with the Health Sciences
Coordinated by Nicole Knibb, Education Coordinator, MMA,
and Christine Wekerle, Associate Professor, Pediatrics, McMaster University
A didactic exhibition which examines how visual literacy skills may be employed by health professionals in order to develop their observational and empathetic skills as well as various self-care practices. The exhibition includes works from the McMaster collection by: David Blackwood, Blake Debassige, Betty Goodwin, Tadashi Kawamata, Tony Scherman and Michael Thompson.
This exhibition sprang from two collaborative programs developed by McMaster Museum of Art and the McMaster Faculty of Health Sciences: Engaging and Educating in Child Maltreatment and The Art of Seeing™.
Picturing Wellness II: Museums and Social Engagement
Michelle Bellemare (Toronto)
Rebecca Belmore (Montréal)
Nancy Kembry (Toronto)
Catherine Heard (Toronto)
Yvonne Singer (Toronto)
Picturing Wellness Part II is not meant to be a didactic illustration of Part I. Rather, it presents artworks that ponder, in broad scope, issues related to trauma, the body, memory, history, medicine, health and the museum. What is consistent, throughout all of the works, is a consciousness of an “impact” on the individual and on the role that art can play in interpretation, processing, or healing. The impact could be either physical or mental, individual or societal. The project examines the museum at the crossroads of healthcare and personal well-being.
PANEL DISCUSSION: Thursday February 25 at 6 PM

Presented in partnership with MSU Mental Health Strategy
Moderator: Christine Wekerle
