All are invited to attend a vernissage to celebrate the opening of our newest exhibition, De Musei Fabrica: Cloth and Stitch Inspired by the Maude Abbott Medical Museum, Thursday, May 17, 2018 at 5:30pm.
RSVP required. TO RSVP, please email medicalmuseum.med [at] mcgill.ca
Description: 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.
