Symposium: "Witnessing Cancer"

Event Type: Symposium
Presented By: USF Institute for Research in Art
USF Contemporary Art Museum and Moffitt Cancer Center present "Witnessing Cancer: 
Communicating Illness through Visual Art and Narrative" brings together diverse voices in a 
discussion about how visual art and storytelling can invite audiences to witness cancer with 
empathy and understanding. Hildebrandt will discuss her artwork and its evolution from 
narrative illustrations of her cancer treatment to abstract landscapes that give visual form to 
her experience of fear and physical and psychological endurance. USF English and 
Womenís and Gender Studies professor Diane Price Herndl will discuss the way artistic 
images of post-cancer bodies, particularly womenís bodies in the aftermath of breast cancer, 
invite viewers to witness cancer and shape public conversation about the disease. A 
discussion will follow with Moffitt oncologists Sarah Hoffe, M.D., and Lodovico Balducci, M.D., 
and Faces of Courage founder and CEO Peggie Sherry. The symposium will be moderated 
by USFCAM associate curator of education Megan Voeller.
