recently, art and science were not such distinct disciplines. Before
the 20th century, collectors displayed their scientific treasures
alongside their paintings. In cabinets of “curiosities,” collectors
displayed specimens from the natural world alongside prints, drawings,
and paintings. All of these treasures were deemed marvels of the
material world, equally important for their aesthetic qualities and
expressive of the mystery and hidden order of the world. In the 20th
century, art and science diverged dramatically. Artists and scientists
were regarded as having different perspectives and goals. Now we see a
reconvergence; we appreciate the creative thinking in scientific
discoveries, and artists seek out the images in macro and micro scale
produced from our scientific and tech-dominated age. This
exhibition seeks art that reflects the artist as scientific explorer,
empirical thinker, or art in any media that has been influenced by
scientific discoveries and imagery, past and present.
