Vesalius in Wonderland

Lecture-demonstration by Glenn Harcourt & Lisa Temple-Cox

Wednesday, April 5, 2017 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Glenn Harcourt is an art historian and writer. His academic specialization is North European Renaissance through Baroque and writes about the history of art and visual culture.

Lisa Temple-Cox’s interest in medical and natural history museum display and taxonomy have recently tied in with experiments which are concerned with the use of collage and assemblage to explore both the methodology of display and a kind of auto-ethnography. She is currently involved in a body of work which explores several themes concerned with identity and consciousness. The use of the box as an allegory of the head – a container not just for objects but ideas, memories, and narratives of the self – emerges from the historical ‘wunderkammer’ or curiosity cabinet, that excites wonder, imagination, and desire for knowledge.
