Artifacts from the Maude Abbott Medical Museum provided inspiration for Text’art, a group of six Montreal fibre artists to create new works of art, on view at the Osler Library of the History of Medicine beginning May 17. Each artist had her own method for selecting a piece from the Museum collection. To enhance the exhibit and illustrate the creations, the artifacts themselves, as well as other material and books from the Museum and the Osler Library, are on display. The exhibit places textile practice in the larger context of scientific visualisation and communication.
Co-presented by the Maude Abbott Medical Museum and the Osler Library of the History of Medicine.
