Biodesign Talk & Tour At Woods Gerry Gallery

(9.27) “Biodesign: From Inspiration to Integration,” an exhibition curated by the RISD Nature Lab in collaboration with William Myers, at the Woods-Gerry Gallery concludes Thursday, September 27, with a tour and a talk.

The afternoon will begin with a tour of the exhibition led by co-curators Lucia Monge (MFA, Sculpture ’15) and David Kim (MFA, D+M ’14), followed by a talk by Callie Clayton (BFA, Textiles ’17), materials design research associate at Modern Meadow.

It may seem odd to need a tour of an exhibit, but much of the work here is a science/design hybrid with its own peculiar vernacular which I did not understand. Other pieces are clearly fanciful but make a statement. Seen here is a pink chicken I rather like. (Page 24 of the catalog.)

Tour: 4pm-5pm
Talk: 5pm-6pm

‘Biodesign’ tour & talk, 4pm to 6pm, Thursday, September 27, Woods Gerry Gallery, 62 Prospect Street, (directions)
