BRCA and Art: A Transformative Journey

Anatomy Society are please to present a talk from Jill Mueller, on her art, her BRCA patient experience, and the long-term collaborative project that explores the intersection of the two.

In 2012, artist Jill Mueller tested positive for a hereditary genetic mutation that is associated with a high risk for developing breast and ovarian cancers. When doctors recommended that she could significantly decrease that risk by removing her breasts and ovaries in preventive surgeries, Jill determined to embark on a creative journey alongside the medical one. She needed to reach beyond her traditional painting practice, so asked photographer Maja Daniels to join her in exploring the physical and less visible aspects of an emotionally charged process. Over the next several years, Jill engaged her medical experience as both patient and artist, through collaborative documentary and studio-based photography, personal artwork, creative writing, and research—transforming her art practice alongside her body.

Students from all courses welcome!
