Art Meets Biological Science Symposium

This event is now closed.

The I Love Life Symposium is a two-day symposium sponsored in part by the New Mexico Consortium. This mini-symposium will be held at the New Mexico History Museum (NMHM) April 13th and 14th, 2018 to explore biodiversity and genetics through the lens of art and science. Join us and register today by clicking here.

The symposium will feature four interdisciplinary speakers from across the nation in conversation with local experts in the fields of art and science. In addition to keynotes, round-table discussions and performances will bring diverse voices to the symposium. This event provides an entry point for scientists and nonscientists to more deeply engage with the social, ethical, and philosophical questions posed by genetic science and biotechnology.

In addition to daytime programming at the NMHM, Friday April 13th will feature a LASER (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous) hosted at the Santa Fe Art Institute. The LASER will feature works and talks by visiting artists Victoria Vesna and Allison Kudla, and local artist Ana MacArthur. Finally, a small group will tour locations in Los Alamos including the New Mexico Consortium and Bradbury Museum.
