AbbVie Gallery

Attendees view an art object created through X-ray images of a patient with rheumatoid arthritis.

The exhibit featured more than 200 pieces of art from over 40 countries.

Two attendees take a closer look.

G. Ros Lluch. "Coexistentia" [Marble Sculpture]. The rusted armor “symbolizes the relationship between the autoimmune condition of the disease, the passage of time, and the burden carried by patients.”

M. Blondin de Boer. "Trapped Within" [Digital]. “A visual representation of the patient’s feelings toward her Psoriasis and the experience she has had with the disease.”

A. Marks. "Red Knot" [Painting]. “The neutral palette and continual layering of papers, canvas and stitching reflects the strong sense of denial about the patient’s own pain.”

B. Miller. "TicTacCrohn’s" [Cross Stiching]. “Each tiny little 'x' was me crossing out some of the agony of living with a chronic illness almost my entire life."
