Artist Talk: Suzanne Anker

Thursday, November 14, 6 – 7:30 pm, Gregg Museum of Art & Design

A Bio Art pioneer, visual artist, and theorist working at the intersection of art and the biological sciences, Anker talks about her work as it relates to Art’s Work in the Age of Biotechnology, setting the stage for author Margaret Atwood’s keynote talk on the novel Oryx & Crake at NC State Talley Student Union the following evening (Nov. 15). ARTIST PROFILE


Art’s Work in the Age of Biotechnology: Shaping Our Genetic Futures (Art’s Work/Genetic Futures) is an art-science exhibit and symposium of artists, scientists, and humanities scholars, led by the the NC State University Libraries and the Genetic Engineering and Society Center, held at the Gregg Museum of Art & Design, the physical and digital display spaces of the NC State Libraries and the North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA). These activities will elicit discussion about genetics in society through the lens of contemporary art and offer viewers new ways to think about their role in the genetic revolution.

By combining science and art and design, the artists, and artworks chosen for display, will contextualize genetic engineering by bringing it out of the lab and into public places; challenging viewer’s understandings about the human condition, the material of our bodies, and the consequences of biotechnology. The exhibit(s), integrated curriculum, and cross-campus dialogues will raise awareness and discussion about biotechnologies and their consequences in our society, while drawing in art practices for reaching new communities.

Art’s Work/Genetic Futures: October 17, 2019 – March 15, 2020
