Biodiversity Exhibition

WHO:

Artists/scientists

WHAT:

In his 1998 book, Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge, the esteemed Harvard biologist who coined the term “biodiversity,” E.O. Wilson, argues for a return to the ideals of the original Enlightenment, including the bridging of the sciences and humanities. It is in this spirit that Art & Science Collaborations is organizing the “SCIENCE INSPIRES ART: Biodiversity/Extinction” exhibition at the New York Hall of Science.

We hope to demonstrate the wide diversity of visual tropes that today’s artists are employing to reflect upon the crisis of biodiversity loss and species extinction. We are seeking images of original art executed in any media for this international show.

For this exhibition we are displaying stunning digital images of your artwork created in any media: digital prints, painting, still images from animation and video, sculpture, installation, etc.

WHEN:

Deadline August 23rd
