About

Cristin Millett: Coronal Plane
January 26 - March 9, 2018
Lecture with Cristin Millett: January 26, noon, Lyceum, Pennsylvania Hall (light lunch provided)
Reception: January 26, 4:30-6:30 PM

This exhibition of a large-scale installation and sculpture by Cristin Millett focuses on medical history, specifically the human reproductive system. Titled "Coronal Plane," Millett’s installation responds specifically to the anatomical Renaissance of the sixteenth century, when the practice of instructional dissection became the preferred method for the study of human anatomy. Modeled on the round anatomy theaters of the sixteenth through nineteenth-centuries, where the corpse was placed in the center, Millett’s work examines both historical assumptions about the female body as well as contemporary issues of privacy, voyeurism, and medical rights. Millett’s artistic method is grounded firmly in research on the history of medicine, how anatomy is studied, and the design of historical surgical theaters. The artist intends to evoke discussion about how the female body has been perceived, stereotyped, and stigmatized and to question societal taboos surrounding sexuality and reproduction.
