(Re)Imagining Science

Grunwald Gallery of Art

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.

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.
