TRANSVERSAL: CROSSING TERRITORIES AND INTERCOURSE INFLUENCES BETWEEN DENTAL MEDICINE AND FINE ARTS.

ABSTRACT
This work presents the results of the project «Transversal», one scientific and artistic event
that aims to stablish connections between dental medicine and fine arts.
Held in 2015, in a partnership between the Department of Dental Medicine and the Department of Painting, from the University of Porto, it brought together conferences, concerts and art exhibitions that aimed to discuss the interdisciplinary and the transversality of these two areas. It also aimed to explore in what way the cooperation between both areas could bring positive outcomes for the participants (i.e., teachers, researchers and students from both departments). This article presents the results of this project, and shows how transversality can be an effective tool to construct new and alternative perspectives of Art and Dental Medicine.

Keywords: transversality, dental medicine, painting, contamination.
