Anker: Live "Bio-Art" Exhibitions

From: Suzanne Anker

Date: Sat, 10 Mar 2007 06:58:53 -0500

Dear Panelists.

FYI, here are two live “Bio-Art” Exhibitions currently on going and receiving considerable on-line coverage.

It’s Alive! A Laboratory of Biotech Art

Montserrat College of Art Gallery,

February 16 - April 7, 2007(From the Press Release) :

Biotech art is an emerging and diverse field that is still in the process of defining itself. This exhibit is an investigation of the current intersections of biology, technology, and art. In a world rapidly transformed by science and technology, it is proving difficult to keep up with current developments. With news of genetic engineering regularly making headlines, a growing number of artists have perceived the cultural and aesthetic significance of biotechnology. Artists play an important role in our understanding of the biotechnological world, making it emotionally and intellectually accessible enough for discussion or debate.

Participating artists are Adam Brandejs (Toronto, ONT), Shawn Bailey (Montreal, QC), Brian Burkhardt (Boston), Jennifer Hall (Boston), Blyth Hazen (Boston), Steve Hollinger (Boston), Kevin Jones (New Orleans), Brian Knep (Boston), Hunter O¹Reilly (Chicago), TanitSakakini (Boston), Jennifer Willet (Montreal, QC).

Panel Discussion: Friday, March 16, 6-8 pm at the Unitarian Church, 225 Cabot St.,Beverly, Massachusetts

Artists

BioArt is an art practice in which the medium is living matter and the works of art are produced in laboratories and/or artists’ studios. The tool is biotechnology, which includes such technologies as genetic engineering, tissue culture and cloning. BioArt is considered by most artists to be strictly limited to “living forms,” although there is some debate as to the stages at which matter can be considered to be alive or living. The materials used by Bioartists are cells, DNA, proteins and living tissue. Creating living beings and practicing in the life sciences brings about ethical, social and aesthetic inquiry

Artists:

Eduardo Kac

George Gessert
