A Discussion with BioArtists Rian Hammond, Günes-Hélène Isitan, and Moira Williams

Wednesday, May 9 at 7:00 PM
Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center
341 Delaware Ave., Buffalo, NY

Hear from Spring 2018 artists-in-residence at the Coalesce Center for Biological Art. Each of these artists will present their residency artworks-in-progress, which include musical instruments that interpret unique “fingerprints” of the gut flora, artistic explorations into hormone engineering, foraged bio-imaging-technologies, and living Kombucha sculptures. Coalesce, part of the UB Genome, Environment and Microbiome Community of Excellence, is a hybrid studio-laboratory facility located on UB’s North Campus dedicated to enabling hands-on creative engagement with the tools and technologies of the life sciences. Each academic year, six to eight artists-in-residence are selected following an international call for proposals.

This event is free and open to the public!
