«MEDinART – where MEDicine and ART collide. Part One: The Greek Αrtists»
Curator: Dr. Vasia Hatzi, MEDinART Creator
MEDinART (www.medinart.eu), the global network of 130 artists inspired by bio-medical sciences, presents in the frame of Athens Science Festival 2017 the exhibition entitled “MEDinART – where MEDicine and ART collide. Part One: The Greek Αrtists” (29 March – 02 April 2017).
In the exhibition, the visitor explored the artwork of Greek artists of MEDinART in which the phenomenically different worlds of bio-medical sciences and art find a common ground: dentistry, cardiology, histology, neurosciences, oncology, pharmacology, microbiology, cell biology coexist with photography, painting, jewellery, video art, microscopic photography, thermal photography, conceptual art and bio-music.
