Wolfgang Ganter – Artist Talk: Tuesday, December 12, 1-2pm in Weiss 301

Bacteriality: Fusing Art and Science

Opening: 2-6 pm in the Mock-up Lab, top floor of Weiss

On view until December 13

Artist Wolfgang Ganter uses microbes as instruments to render pictorial artwork. This unique interplay leads to spontaneous interactions between the organisms and photographic media, and allows the unimaginable to emerge.
In this lecture, he will present a seminar on his work fusing art and science.
An exhibition of Wolfgang’s works will be on view after the talk in the Mock-up lab on the top floor of Weiss. The exhibition will remain open until 6 p.m.
A brief introduction will be given by John LaCava about their rapidly-growing art/science collaboration network.
Wolfgang Ganter recently began a one month artist-in-residence at The Rockefeller University in the Laboratory of Cellular and Structural Biology, after which he will take up a residency at the Australia China Art Foundation in Shanghai, China.

This residence was made possible by the ArtSci Nexus and Rockefeller University.
