Inside and Out : A Panel Discussion on the
Body Worlds Exhibits

Tuesday, April 24th, 4:10pm

School of the Art Institute of Chicago
Room 1307, Michigan Building
112 S. Michigan Ave.

Is a displayed cadaver art or science? Both or neither? What roles do display, creative intention, and viewer response play in deciding? Join us for a conversation on these topics!

On the occasion of "Body Worlds 2," now at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry, SAIC hosts a discussion on the Body Worlds phenomenon. Bringing together a cross-disciplinary panel from sculpture, performance, art history, and museum curation, this forum provides an opportunity to explore the various questions regarding art, science and education raised and embodied by this ongoing exhibit. Please join us.

Lyle Massey
