Event Navigation

The Genetic Engineering and Society (GES) Center, NC State University Libraries, and Gregg Museum of Art & Design will host a full-day symposium to discuss the Art’s Work in the Age of Biotechnology exhibition (go.ncsu.edu/artswork). The symposium will bring together an international group of artists, humanists, and social/natural scientists, using the exhibition as a departure point for conversations about the future of biotechnology and genetics.

The symposium places art at the center of discussions about the future of biotechnology by presenting works in which artists appropriate tools and techniques of modern biotechnology that have until recently been the exclusive purview of scientists. The afternoon (public) session of the symposium will be held at D.H. Hill, Jr. Library Auditorium beginning at 2:00 pm.
* 2—3 pm: Biotechnology as Culture
* 3—4 pm: Genetic Arts Intervening in the Anthropocene: Climate, Geoengineering, and Ecosystems
* 4—5 pm: Art and Identities: From Surveillance and Privacy to Collective Identities and Personal Choices

Registration for this event is free and recommended, though not required. To register click here.
