(Re)Imagining Science

12:00 pm to 04:00 pm on Nov 16
Grunwald Gallery of Art
http://www.indiana.edu/~grunwald

The Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University Bloomington is pleased to present (Re)Imagining Science, an exhibition and events based on collaborative projects by artist and scientist teams from Indiana University. The exhibit will open to the public on Friday, October 14, with a reception from 6:00-8:00pm in the Grunwald Gallery.

(Re)Imagining Science contains collaborative projects by twelve teams of researchers in the arts and sciences. The exhibition, based at Indiana University Bloomington, contains a variety of projects by artists and scientists that illustrate scientific principles, develop ways to understand science differently, and potentially may create new science as the outcome. Collaborations will feature the work of researchers in the visual and sound arts, design, sciences and social sciences, with ambitious works that include large scale sculptural objects, photographs, installations, video works, interactive environments, microscopy images, and sound works.

The exhibit and programs explore the relationship between creative production in the arts and sciences and the interactivity of collaboration. The projects utilize scientific images as a springboard to introduce creative concepts and non-traditional thinking into the production of visual materials that will highlight and illustrate ideas found in science. The visual arts and sciences have a shared history of creativity and parallel paths of experimentation, goal seeking, and trial and error. The interconnectedness of these thought and work processes will be highlighted, and the similarities and differences in the thought processes within these disciplines are explored.
The theme of artist/scientist collaboration is pervasive in the contemporary art world, and has reflected a general overall interest in the creative nature of the visual arts and its similarities and differences in scientific exploration. The collaboration within these artist/scientist teams has produced projects that incorporate not only significantly different kinds of creative thinking, but may introduce new ways to illustrate scientific ideas and processes.

The exhibition will travel to other science and university museums, and a catalog of the exhibition featuring essays by Professor Christoph Irmscher and artist Rosamond Purcell will be produced and distributed by Indiana University Press.

(Re)Imagining Science is sponsored in part by Indiana University’s New Frontiers in the Arts & Humanities Program. Further assistance comes from the College Arts and Sciences and the Center for Integrative Photographic Studies, with additional support from the Studio Art Department in the School of Art and Design in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Grunwald Gallery at Indiana University.

Eye of the Beholder: Fashion and Transforming Ideals of Beauty

01:00 pm to 05:00 pm
Indiana University Center for Art + Design
https://www.iu.edu/~iucad/

October 14 – November 18, 2016

Ideals of beauty and body shape are varied and often unattainable. Dictated by “fashion gatekeepers”, the stylish female form cycles between a Classical column, a floating hourglass, and bustled volume at the rear of the skirt. These three iconic silhouettes are illustrated by thirty women’s ensembles selected from the Sage Collection, demonstrating ideals of beauty and body shape from 1775 to the present.

Part of the new Indiana University School of Art + Design-Bloomington, the Sage Collection preserves nearly 25,000 items of clothing and related artifacts for exhibition and research. This exhibition is made possible by the IU College of Art and Sciences-School of Art + Design, and the Endowment by Bill Blass to Friends of the Sage Collection. For further information: 812-855-4627.

Please join us for an opening reception on Friday October 14, 2016 at 6-8PM.

Visual Mediations

05:00 pm to 05:30 pm
By Hand Gallery
http://www.byhandgallery.com

Tom has always been fascinated by the rich and diverse character of our earth. His goal is to share his perception and visualization of this. Of course he cannot capture reality; rather, as with any artist, he seeks to reveal his perception and understanding of the environment in a way that will stimulate the imagination and emotions of the viewer. The beauty of morning and especially evening light and the resulting shadows are an important component in representing that perception.

Of course, people and their artifacts are an important part of our environment. Indeed, while continuing with his nature photography, his two current projects focus on the interaction between man and environment.

“Nurturing the Heartland” was an 18 month project in which Tom photographed two farmers who were committed to sustainable pasture farming. His goal was to tell, in photographs as well as words, the story of life on a small family farm where the goal was to improve the health of the land as well as the people who eat their food.

The second project, which is ongoing, is “Harvesting Limestone.” It focuses on the workers in the limestone quarries that are part of Indiana Limestone Company.

In this show, Tom focuses on nature photography but include samples from these two projects.
