Lost in Translation: Artist and Scientist Collaboration
swissnex San Francisco - San Francisco Art Institute
What happens when eight artists invade scientific laboratories? Find out in the Think Art-Act Science exhibition on view September 21 through November 12 at the San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) in the Walter & McBean Galleries.
Transforming the galleries into a working lab, the exhibition is composed of artists who took part in the Swiss artists-in-labs program, an immersive nine-month residency in a scientific research institute or a university science department. During these residencies, the artists gained deep insights into the methodologies of scientific research in areas ranging from biology and biodiversity to cognitive neuroscience and psychology to nanotechnology, robotics, artificial intelligence, and physics.
