What inspires artists to make work about illness? And what challenges face those working with artists in hospitals? Mary Grehan of the Waterford Healing Arts Trust and artists Ciara McMahon and Dominic Thorpe join artist Rachel Tynan for this free event, which is organised in light of Tynan’s research and resulting exhibition, Cut Throat, at The LAB. Supported by Dublin City of Science 2012 and Innovation Dublin, this talk will explore the nature of art and illness from the perspectives of the curator working in a medical environment and the artists responding to illness through their work.
