McEvoy Foundation for the Arts presents:

In Conversation: Heather Dewey-Hagborg and Annalee Newitz

Saturday, August 27, 3:00pm-4:00pm, San Francisco CA

MORE INFO: https://www.mcevoyarts.org/event/heather-dewey-hagborg-annalee-newitz/

Join artist and biohacker Heather Dewey-Hagborg and science fact and fiction writer Annalee Newitz for a lively conversation on the generative intersection of art and science. This event is free with registration.

Drawing from their boundary-breaking practices, the two will discuss the increasingly blurring lines between the natural and the unnatural in biotechnology and beyond. Dewey-Haborg's 2019 installation Lovesick, on view in MYR, was made in collaboration with research scientists and depicts a custom retrovirus that increases production of oxytocin (the "love hormone") in the human body. Newitz explores both science fiction and nonfiction in their award-winning articles, books, and podcasts. This conversation is co-presented with the Exploratorium, where Dewey-Hagborg is Artist-in-Residence, and is introduced by MYR guest curator Elizabeth Thomas.

This conversation is presented in conjunction with MYR, an exhibition at McEvoy Arts exploring deep time and human existence on Earth. The artworks on view bring science and speculation together to explore how deeper visions of space and time relate to contemporary existential anxieties, particularly the imminent climate emergency. Admission to exhibitions at McEvoy Arts is free.
