Inquiries of Art and Science

29 September - 31 December 2017

Wonder. It is the experience of awe and inspiration; and also the action of questioning and seeking. Wonder – as experience and action – is cultivated mutually through science and art, and contemporary practices in both fields are more kindred than ever. In fact, their synergies have led in recent years to more overt cross-references and also fruitful and inventive collaborations between artists and scientists. The source of inspiration for this particular exhibition is a selection of artists who desire to understand, question and describe the subject of time: as scientific fact, as relative experience, as aesthetic archive.

The topic is timely as ongoing discussions of STEAM curriculum reverberate in our schools. The preciousness of time is also amplified by growing concerns about the environment and global mortality from a macro perspective to a micro vantage point as individuals struggle to make sense of a faster-paced, connected world where everything runs on the 24-hour news cycle.

Artists include Lucas Arruda, Darren Almond, Rosa Barba, Luis Camnitzer, Julia Dault, Tacita Dean, Noah Doely, Spencer Finch, Charles Gaines, Camille Henrot, On Kawara, Tom LaDuke, Julie Mehretu, Richard Mosse, Trevor Paglen, Howardena Pindell, Thiago Rocha Pitta, Dawn Roe, Tomás Saraceno, Yinka Shonibare, Xaviera Simmons, Sarah Sze, Sara VanDerBeek, and Lawrence Weiner.
