Exhibition | De Musei Fabrica: Cloth and Stitch Inspired by the Maude Abbott Medical Museum

Event

McIntyre Medical Building Osler Library of the History of Medicine, 3rd floor, 3655 promenade Sir William Osler, Montreal, QC, H3G 1Y6, CA

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.

Text’art, a group of six Montreal fibre artists are:

  • Helena Scheffer
  • Lauma Kristina Cenne
  • Dianne Robinson
  • Michele Meredith
  • Colleen Paul
  • Heather Dubreuil

Co-presented by the Maude Abbott Medical Museum and the Osler Library of the History of Medicine.
