The focus of the exhibition is linked with the theme of the Brown Symposium: Healing - The Art & Science of Medicine. 

The art exhibition Reconceived Bodies (In Three Parts) by Patricia Olynyk presents selections from three distinct groupings of work, which explore medical, scientific, technological, and symbolic representations of both human and non-human life. These photographs, prints, and lightboxes investigate an array of themes that include: The Posthuman; Elective Biohancement and Cyborg Identity; The Gendering of Medical Knowledge; and The Body as Code. 
The exhibition is curated by Victoria Star Varner, Professor of Art and will be presented in the Fine Arts Gallery at Southwestern University. The opening reception is February 6 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. and the exhibition continues through March 6, 2014.
 
Free and open to the public.
