The Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University seeks submissions for “Cell Mates,” two distinct group shows that will be on view side by side in adjacent galleries. Curators Jeanne Brasile and Lisbeth Murray will divide the 2,000 sq. ft. gallery in half, creating two separate exhibitions of artwork inspired by cellular forms. The curators seek art that addresses a wide range of topics related to cellular forms to create a discursive exploration into microorganisms and concerns derived from their study.
The goal of the curators is to demonstrate modes of creation inspired by science, in addition to examining how curators using the same narrative framework can come to very different thematic and aesthetic conclusions. While aesthetics are a concern, the curators are particularly interested in how artists incorporate scientific methods into their practice, how artists obscure or pronounce the delineation between artistic and scientific practices, and/or how artists visualize scientific data to create works of art, placing the artist in the role of quasi-scientist. All types of media are eligible.
Exhibition dates are June 2 - July 18, 2013.
Deadline: Wednesday May 1, 2013 (receipt date)
