"The Arts in Global Health" – Exhibit Opening: February 28, 2011
âThe Arts in Global Healthâ? â an exhibition of photographs, objects, and writing â shows how Princeton students are bringing challenging social and medical realities into the life of the University as it seeks to internationalize education. Supported by the Program in Global Health and Health Policy and the Health Grand Challenges Initiative, this interdisciplinary group of students has combined research and service in communities all over the worldâfrom China to South Africa, Sierra Leone to Brazil and Belize. The photographs and objects they have brought back convey the rich intensity of their encounters with the people of global health. In the ethnographic stories and individual narratives that accompany each piece, students not only add historical and contextual depth to the vulnerable populations they engagedâthey also bring critical scrutiny to the possibilities and limits of their own modes of representation. Through their creative work, students reflect on evidence-making practices and ask how large-scale health interventions affect not only patients, but also their families, medical workers, health systems and politics. On display in the Bernstein Annex Gallery from February 28, 2011, âThe Arts in Global Healthâ? proves the value of a people-centered approach to global health.
