I invite you to share your biggest hopes and concerns about pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) or the genetic engineering of human embryos on the blog site listed below. I will incorporate some of your responses into a genomic art piece that will be used to foster public dialogue about the social and ethical dimensions of PGD. This piece will experiment with on and offline methods of engagement in order to explore issues that are often ignored in scientific literature. When you arrive at the site, please take a moment to read the background and consent information before you contribute to the blog. This project has received ethics approval from the University of British Columbia.

SUBMISSIONS WANTED for genomic art show

Thu May 04, 2006 17:31

SUBMISSIONS WANTED for genomic art show being organizing in collaboration with Outworks Gallery in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada (see link and information below).

The main objective of this show is to initiate dialogue and debate about genetics/genomics related issues. We would like to have a number of different artistic points of views represented. There is also a possibility that we may do a similar show in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada and compare the responses of the two Canadian audiences (prairie vs. coastal folk).

I am looking for an additional 8-10 emerging or established artists in the field using any medium. If you are interested in this opportunity, please email for submission information.

The space: 2500 square feet, 12 feet high ceilings.
