Boston Biomedical Research Institute Partners With The School Of The Museum Of Fine Arts, Boston, To Explore The Intersection Of Art & Science


7/12/2006 10:37:09 AM

WATERTOWN, Mass., July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston's (SMFA) Institute for Art and Civic Engagement (IACE) and the Boston Biomedical Research Institute (BBRI), today announced a new collaborative partnership in which an advanced SMFA student has been selected to spend a three-month residency at BBRI's research facility in Watertown, MA. The goal of the program is to foster a mutual exchange and evolving dialog between the artist and a group of scientists, in which each would explore and learn from the other regarding their work, methods, philosophies, techniques and technologies.

This residency will ultimately result in a new body of work created by the artist to be exhibited in BBRI's exhibition space in December 2006, a visual representation of the intersection of BBRI's scientific endeavors and mission with the artist's unique inspiration and vision. The intersection of art & science represents a special opportunity for both artists and scientists to collaborate to develop new work and to discover new directions for creative exploration and inquiry.

"So much of biological science is visual and many scientists also have a keen interest in art. We are extremely intrigued by the intersection of art and science and are delighted to be partnering with the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to help broaden the scope of both areas," said Charlie Emerson, Ph.D., Director and Senior Scientist, Boston Biomedical Research Institute.
