      EVENT DETAILS
      The House of the Soul

      UNE Gallery’s spring exhibition, “The House of the Soul”, will present a unique look at medical/anatomical drawing in dialogue with artwork focusing on the human body in a more extended sense. Viewers from various intellectual fields (from medicine, to critical theory, and beyond) will be confronted with the divergent and sometimes contradictory communicative aims of each visual artifact. The inclusion of intelligent contemporary work dealing with representations of the body’s physical form will allow a deeper and more abstract reading of the scientific drawings, while in turn the scientific drawings will highlight the power of conceptual idiosyncrasy in the contemporary work.

      The ten artists represented in the exhibit span a range of approaches, from direct, highly-articulated medical illustration, to conceptually-oriented space-based constructions. Through their explorations, a window into the diverse uses of figurative interpretation will be opened.
