The Medicine + Media Art Fellowship

In a time of pandemic conditions, the exchange between media art, medicine and the medical humanities in particular foregrounds the critical role of art practice in negotiating the human experience. The Medicine + Media Art Fellowship is a multi-institutional initiative offering lectures, exhibitions, symposia, and original creative work that bridges the fields of medicine and media art.

Patricia Olynyk brings her experience working and teaching at the intersection of art, science, technology, and medicine to her appointment as Medicine + Media Art Fellow. In addition to this fellowship, Olynyk serves as the Florence and Frank Bush Professor of Art at the Sam Fox School of Visual Art at Washington University in Saint Louis and as the Co-Director of NY LASER (Leonardo/ISAST).

Also collaborating on this initiative are Washington University in St. Louis’s own Dr. Piroska Kopar, MD, Director of the Center for Humanism and Ethics in Surgical Specialties (CHESS), and Dr. Rebecca Messbarger, Ph.D., Co-Founder and First Director of Medical Humanities.
