Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: FREE
 

Michael Rossi, Assistant Professor of the History of Medicine at the University of Chicago, will lead a gallery walk-through of Christina Mackie’s solo exhibition "Colour drop." Rossi is a historian of medicine and science in the United States from the nineteenth century to the present. His work focuses on the historical and cultural metaphysics of the body: how different people at different times understood questions of beauty, truth, falsehood, pain, pleasure, goodness, and reality vis-à-vis their corporeal selves and those of others. Rossi will lend his insights to deciphering Mackie’s solo exhibition and its central use of color.
