2019-2023 The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Artworks Grant Project:
Artists Accessing Scientific Labs: Conversations with the Public
This National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Artworks Grant Project will take place at UC Davis in 2023. Artists selected for the project will travel to UC Davis to conduct their artistic research in science laboratories on campus to produce new research and engage the community for conversation at the Shrem Museum. Each NEA event will have three steps: (1) Artistic production: A curatorial committee selects and invites artists to campus during one academic quarter. Artists and scientists use the time to share their research and produce experimental work. (2) Public Conversations: The artist/scientist pair engages the public with their work in a live public conversation at the Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis. (3) Documentation: process and work from the collaboration will be published in a new online publication hosted by UC Davis.
