NAS announces Virtual Symposium on Visual Culture and Bioscience

WASHINGTON -- The Office of Exhibitions and Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences will co-host the Virtual Symposium on Visual Culture and Bioscience from March 5 to 13, 2007, with the Center for Art and Visual Culture at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

Experts from around the world will discuss the intersections between the visual arts and the life sciences at this international event, which will take place on the Internet. A group of 30 participants comprised of artists, scientists, historians, ethicists, curators, sociologists, and writers will present a variety of perspectives on topics such as artists in the lab, imaging in art and bioscience, and the sociological implications of the growing connections between the two fields. A complete list of participants and examples of such intersections can be found on the following pages.

The discussion, which will be conducted through a listserv, will be accessible online at www.visualcultureandbioscience.org.

Suzanne Anker, a visual artist and theorist working with genetic imagery, will moderate the discussion. She is the co-author of The Molecular Gaze: Art in the Genetic Age (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2004). She curated Gene Culture: Molecular Metaphor in Contemporary Art (Fordham University, 1994), the first exhibition devoted entirely to the intersection of art and genetics. Anker teaches art history and theory at the School of Visual Arts in New York City where she is chair and editor of ArtLab23. She is also the host of BioBlurb on WPS1 Art Radio.

This event is made possible through the generous support of Ralph S. OConnor and the Marian and Speros Martel Foundation. It is sponsored by the Office of Exhibitions and Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences and UMBC.

For more than 20 years, the Office of Exhibitions and Cultural Programs of the
