Tuesday, April 10 @7:30pm : Conference « Medical Cultures » – Ties between between Art and illness | CANCELED
Framed in our cycle « Medical Cultures », the Fondation des Etats-Unis has the pleasure of presenting the conference by Doctor Anne-Marie Dubois, entitled « Ties between Art and illness through the artworks of the Sainte-Anne Hospital Museum’s Collection ».
Beyond its ancient and singular History (more than 150 years), the Sainte-Anne’s Collection and its Museum, the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire de l’Hôpital Sainte-Anne (MAHHSA) invite us to reflect about the question of Illness, its representations and the creation process.
This reflection also boards onto the notions of « category » and « classification », applied to the people, the ill and sick, but also to the artistic styles.
Doctor Anne-Marie Dubois is a medical psychiatrist, responsible of the Art Therapy Unit at the Clinique des maladies mentales de l’encéphale (CMME) based at the Sainte-Anne Hospital Center. She is also the Administrator of the Sainte-Anne’s Collection and presides the Centre d’études de l’expression (CEE) at Sainte-Anne’s, where she currently holds the position of Secretary-General.
