WORKS BY artists exploring bio-sciences will be displayed alongside industrial medical devices in the exhibition Chimera: art of exploration.
Chimera, a group exhibition curated by Andrea Fitzpatrick, opens in the Bioscience Building, NUI Galway, this Tuesday at 5pm, and runs until Friday June 6 from 12 noon to 4pm daily.
The exhibition will feature work by Siobhan McGibbon, whose work is predominantly sculpture based; Marie Connole, whose practice comprises painting, drawing, object-making, installation, and collaborative work; printmaker and designer Paul Maye; and students of the Centre for Creative Arts and Media, GMIT, who are participating in a short research project, creating works in response to what they have seen and experienced in the NFB research laboratories.
Chimera will also feature medical devices from Boston Scientific, Vornia, Aerogen, and Osteoanchor, as well as materials designed to educate the public on medical device research.
Galway based Swedish artist Cecilia Danell and Prof Rhodri Cedrig from the National Centre for Bioengineering Science will choose the winners of the ‘Biosciences Art Competition.’ The competition includes art works by research scientists and engineers within the Biosciences building and the winners will be announced at the wine reception on Tuesday evening.
