Vitruvian Man painting by Vincent Devine

14 Nov 2023 - 15 Nov 2023


Tuesday 14th - Wednesday 15th November

‘The Vitruvian: Uncovering the Layers of Cancer’ is a body of work by Tullamore local and leading Irish artist, Vincent Devine. It has been co-created with cancer
researchers and patient partners at the UCD Conway Institute, University College Dublin.

Inspired by the iconic drawing of ‘The Vitruvian Man’ by artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent has created a striking image of an androgynous human to visually
map the different perspectives and approaches that researchers use to understand cancer at molecular, cellular, tissue and human levels.

This exhibition will be on show from the 4th - 15th November, alongside events that will bring the exhibition to life. The artist and up to three cancer researchers and patient partners will talk about the creative process itself and the ongoing cancer research efforts, highlighting progress in this area. These will take place at 2:30pm-3:30pm and 5:30pm - 7pm on 15th November. 

More than ever before, cancer survivors are living longer and better lives. Cancer researchers in Ireland are contributing to global improvements in cancer outcomes. Join the conversation.
