Vanishing In Plain Sight: Alzheimer’s Explored through the Art of Olivia Parker

A Discussion with Eric McDade, DO, Associate Professor of Neurology, Washington University School of Medicine

Saturday, February 8th, 2020
1:30 – 2:30 pm at IPHF

The series Vanishing in Plain Sight represents Olivia Parker’s journey into Alzheimer’s Disease as experienced through her late husband, John Parker, who passed away in December of 2016.

A continuing work in progress, Vanishing in Plain Sight proves to be some of the most emotionally evocative and experimental work of Parker’s long career. Poignant and deeply moving, this series finds the artist exploring new grounds, including self-portraiture and dramatic grid sequences, while still retaining the vivid color and abstract liveliness that have become the signature of her still life work.

Eric McDade, DO, is an Associate Professor of Neurology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. His research interests include the application of cerebrospinal fluid and neuroimaging measures to identify early pathology of Alzheimer’s disease, the interaction of cerebrovascular function and Alzheimer pathology with the ultimate goal of identifying early markers of Alzheimer’s disease progression that can be used in testing disease modifying therapies.
