The City of Pembroke Pines and the Frank Art Gallery are pleased to present Biological Futurism, which will be on display virtually from November 5 through December 26.
Biological Futurism presents an immersive world inspired by scientific illustration and the adaptive capabilities of nature. Guests can enjoy a 360-degree interactive tour of the exhibition online.
Challenging the divide between art and science, Biological Futurism explores topics of hybridization, environmental biology and cellular interaction through art. This virtual exhibition is a curatorial collaboration with South Florida-based art and technology organization, Interactive Initiative.
Evoking memories of curio cabinets within archetypal science museums, The Frank reinvents itself as a vast display case brimming with scientific specimens – all of which are imagined, reconstructed, or transformed. Freed from the boundaries of the canvas, biological organisms dance across gallery walls and escape the constraints of time and place.
Biological Futurism highlights the work of artists Judith Berk King, Georgeta Fondos, Lisa Haque, Andy Lomas, Lisa McCutcheon and Gretchen Scharnagl.
In celebration of 'Biological Futurism,' The Frank is hosting free virtual art workshops, lectures, tutorials and storybook readings. Please visit The Frank's virtual classroom here to access this free art education content!
