Conversations Between Artists & Scientists: The China Shop
May 30 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Tuesday, May 30
The China Shop is a new initiative led by Faculty Principal Investigator Jiayi Young (Department of Design) and Co-Principal Investigator Tim Hyde (Department of Art Studio) that embeds resident artists and designers within scientific laboratories at UC Davis to conduct research and explore shared inquiries. Playing off the idea of “a bull in a china shop,” the two-year endeavor brings together four artist- scientist pairs creating opportunities to engage in transdisciplinary exchanges and a space to ask unconventional, radical and even impossible questions. Each residency includes a public conversation where the pair discusses their creative work, system of collaboration, and works in progress.
This project is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts Art Works Grant. The organizers thank the Letters and Science Dean’s Office, the Office of Research and the Manetti Shrem Museum for matching support. China Shop is part of the Leonardo Art, Science, Evening Rendezvous (LASER) series and is published in ARTECA, a curated space for essential content linking the arts, sciences and technologies (MIT Press).
