Cared For (Exhibition)

The Blaffer Art Museum will present the work of three artists who propose alternative meditations and visualizations of the medical process. Shana Hoehn, Virginia Lee Montgomery and Sarah Sudhoff have all spent significant time living and working in Texas, and each will share work that reformulates our visual and conceptual models of healing and remedy. This exhibition will offer a space for a recalibration of care and how it is practiced as both one and many.
