The exhibition Common Place, Uncommon Space: Is Healthcare a White Space? grew out of a Gray Center Fellowship between illustrator Julia Kuo and University of Chicago physicians and researchers, Monica E. Peek and Elizabeth L. Tung of the Department of Medicine, for a project that considered how illustration might play a role in examining the barriers that distrust and difference  can form between patients and their doctors.
