Gallery Lecture
Saturday 1 December at 12noon

This lecture will explore a new medical humanities module developed by Brenda Moore-McCann, a medical doctor and art historian, at the School of Medicine Trinity College Dublin since 2008. Employing both medical and art imagery and the participation of the audience, the lecture will outline some of the ways perception and thinking are linked.

Brenda Moore-McCann is a medical doctor and art historian. Qualifying in the Medical School at University College Dublin, she practiced medicine for twenty years before taking a degree and Ph.D. in Art History at Trinity College Dublin. She is the author of an internationally acclaimed book on the artist Brian O’Doherty, formerly known as Patrick Ireland (Brian O’Doherty/Patrick Ireland: Between Categories, 2009).

Forthcoming publications include essays on the Hello, Sam installation by O’Doherty at Dublin Contemporary in 2011 (due 2012) and the Rosc exhibitions (RIA/Yale, due 2014). She lectures widely.

In 2008 she devised and teaches a humanities module on the art of perception in medicine and the visual arts in the School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin.
