Introduction and notes by
Sidney Golub, Ph.D
The Art Of Stem Cells
The OCCCA gallery presents a SciArt exhibit in collaboration with the scientists of the Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center at UCI. This exhibit is a unique melding of artists and scientists meeting, interviewing and touring their laboratories.
Scientists and artists have always been engaged in trying to fathom the reality beyond appearances, the world invisible to our eyes. In Leonardo da Vinci's day their was no distinction between artist and scientist. Since that time, we began to think of art as depicting nature and science as tearing it apart.
Now we are witnessing the birth of a new movement in art being identified as SciArt. We see where art, science and technology have merged, blurring the boundaries on the largest of scales in which these three disciplines no longer function separately. They are less defined as a movement and the beginning of a whole new culture. Many artists no longer see the distinction between artist and scientists but regard themselves as researchers.
This Exhibit will be OCCCA's 4th showing of conceptual medical art. In 2005 Leslie Davis presented her show on viruses, Worlds In Collision, followed in 2007 by The Art Of Digital Imaging, a collaboration of OCCCA members with Mission Hospital for the opening of their new Imaging Building.
By 2010 Leslie Davis met UCI stem cell researchers Aileen Anderson, Brian Cummings and Director, Peter Donovan. A new passion for Stem Cell research was born, which inspired the Regeneration show which delivered insight and education to the public on the great hope of Stem Cell treatment and cures.
OCCCA UCI Collaboration of 2014 The Art Of Stem Cells Is part of this growing SciArt culture where the border between artist and scientist and scientist is melting away. Artists curated by Leslie Davis and participating OCCCA members.
