Art Hx: addresses the historical and ongoing entanglements between art, race, and medicine in the spaces of the former British empire, specifically Africa, Australia, the Caribbean, New Zealand, South Asia, and the United States from the 16th century onward. This project draws on historical materials and centralizes their ongoing influence on how we interact with, experience, and understand conceptions of health, medicine, and race today.
