Their paper entitled "From Queen Victoria to Sausage Pants: Making Space for Art at the RVH and MUHC"  will "examine art as a relational interface in order to critique hospital arts programming that focuses primarily on making patients, visitors, and staff 'feel good' [using] a series of historical and contemporary examples related to artworks at the Royal Victoria Hospital and the Glen site."
