Art's Work in the Age of Biotechnology (ongoing)

March 1, 2021 (All day)

Abstract: This virtual exhibition of art-science works by internationally recognized artists opens March 1. Situating contemporary genetics within a spectrum of past, present, and future ways of configuring bodies and technologies, it prompts viewers to reconsider their relationships with one another and with other species. Throughout the Spring, the artists will participate in events—talks and workshops—highlighting the themes of their works.

The exhibition may be viewed here.
