    The relationship between subject and object in the portrayal of the human body has been a fascinating dichotomy throughout the history of art. With current conversations around identity and the prolific visual representations of our selves through social media, contemporary artists have more to say than ever before about what it means to depict a body and what that body says or doesn’t say about an individual’s identity. This dynamic dialogue among subject, object, and identity also exists in the healthcare fields, as practitioners must objectify patients to treat them, but also understand them as subjects and individuals to treat them compassionately.

    Close observation and dialogue about artwork can be used to improve clinical practice in nursing and other medical education. Some Bodies challenges viewers to think about human bodies as objects, the subjects they represent, and the clues about identity that are present or assumed.
