The Intersection

Meet artists who are pushing the boundaries between the fields of science and art and learn how an interdisciplinary approach to thinking and problem solving can help us address some of today’s most challenging social issues. The aim of this program is to highlight individual artists who are engaging with science art and technology in intriguing ways, the benefits and challenges of collaboration and how interdisciplinary practice can help us address some of today’s most challenging obstacles. Audiences will have an opportunity to engage in critical dialogue with participating artists following a presentation and conversation about an artists work. This season’s featured artists include performing artists Zach Blas and Mother Cyborg, filmmaker and artist Cauleen Smith, and social practice artist Bridget Quinn in conversation with art historian John Corso. The Intersection series is a partnership between MOCAD and Science Gallery Lab Detroit. It is supported by generous funding from the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan and SGLD’s founding partner, MSUFCU.
