VIVO is pleased to host Curiosity Collider on Friday November 13th: "While art and science both have the power to instill curiosity and inspire creations, they are often seen as being at odds. A group of local artists and scientist, however, think otherwise. On November 13, they will take part in the “SPARK! Emerging collisions between art & science” exhibition, to show that sparks can fly when art and science come together. SPARK! is an interactive art-science exhibition co-produced by Curiosity Collider and VIVO Media Arts Centre. The show spotlights 18 interdisciplinary exhibits by 15 local artists & scientists that demonstrate how art changes our experience of science. From 2- and 3-dimensional art to animation and interactive exhibits, VIVO’s warehouse transforms into the stage for new expressions of science. Exhibits include original collaborative works with scientists and technology experts. SPARK! features the emerging art-science collisions of local artists and scientists: Aileen Penner, Char Hoyt, Christopher Rodrigues, Daniel DeGagne, Dzee Louise, Erick James, Erik Zepka, Jaedan Leimert, Jeremiah Birnbaum, Julia Maddison, Luke Blackstone, Michelle Weinstein, Patrick Keeling, Robi Smith, and Willa Downing. SPARK! is curated by Vancouver artist and Curiosity Collider Creative Director, Char Hoyt." Facebook Event Page Eventbrite Page
