Christa Donner and Timea Tihanyi at IMSS
Chicago artist Christa Donner creates new models for the human body based on sensation and imagination. On Friday, May 2nd, the International Museum of Surgical Science presents "ExtraSensory," an exhibition of Donner's drawing-based installation, zines, photography, and works on paper from a body of work created in collaboration with rural teens. The resulting images present a complex, surreal look at teenage body image and the things we can feel but can't see.
The museum also debuts "Two Spaces, One Body," a new site-specific work by Seattle artist Timea Tihanyi , who recreates historic medical images through fiber-based installation. Both exhibitions are part of the Anatomy in the Gallery series, and open with a free reception amidst the giant kidney stones and antique forceps of the museum's collection.
Free public reception for the artists on Friday, May 2nd from 5 - 8 pm
The exhibition remains on view through April 18, 2008 with museum admission
