Exhibition to be held at Beaney Art Museum, Canterbury, April 21st – August 15, 2016
PRESCRIPTIONS is a juried exhibition of book art to supplement an exhibition of Martha Hall’s works as part of Artists’ Books and Medical Humanities symposium and workshop, organised by University of Kent and University of New England. Hall’s books, created from 1998 until her death in 2003, document her experiences with breast cancer and her interactions with the medical community. The symposium, which will launch the exhibition, will explore connections between artists’ books, health/illness and medicine from interdisciplinary perspectives. It will include invited keynote presentations, panels, a poetry reading, an exhibition tour and a documentary screening that features Martha Hall.
