Intimate Science features a collection of artists with diverse works ranging from architectural fungi sculptures and trademarked flowers that have been genetically hacked. Intimate Science is curated by Andrea Grover and organized by the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh. Grover writes that even ambitious endeavors such as independent biological experiments, materials research and micro-manufacturing can be conducted by today’s working artist — and not at a naive or removed distance.
Intimate Science is presented in conjunction with Diagram and Science on Screen as a part of Real Art Ways' larger Art and Science program. Forthcoming workshops, readings and conversations with the artists and notable scientific innovators in the Hartford region will further shape the programming. One such workshop, titled Mind Reading for the Left and Right Brain, features artists with Los Angeles-based Machine Project leading participants in developing psychic abilities and crafting their own lie-detectors.
Intimate Science will open at Real Art Ways with a reception on November 3, 6-8 p.m. The exhibition will remain in the galleries through March 20. Workshops with participating artists will be announced.
