Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Michele Larose, artist and paediatric neuropsychiatrist who trained in psychiatry and child psychiatry at McGill and in visual arts at Curtin University in Australia, the Osler Library of the History of Medicine has established an artist-in-residence programme.

The award supports visual artists visiting the university to create visual works that address contemporary and/or historical subjects in medicine and the health sciences that are inspired by the rich and diverse collections held by the Osler Library and/or other sources at McGill. Possible projects can include, but are not limited to: painting; photography; performance; sculpture; and digital, video or installation art.

The Larose-Osler Artist in Residence will receive assistance from the staff of the Osler Library and will have full access to the library?s world-class historical and contemporary collections as well as other sources. Please note that the artist will be accommodated as best as possible, but there is no dedicated studio space available.
