Biological Futurism: Virtual Exhibition & Tour
The exhibition may be over, but Biological Futurism is still viewable via an interactive 360° virtual tour! Navigate through the virtual exhibition, here!
From November 5, 2020 through January 30, 2021,The City of Pembroke Pines and the Frank Art Gallery hosted Biological Futurism
, which invited guests to venture into an immersive world inspired by scientific illustration and the adaptive capabilities of nature. Presented via a 360° interactive tour, Biological Futurism
highlights the work of artists Judith Berk King, Georgeta Fondos, Lisa Haque, Andy Lomas, Lisa McCutcheon and Gretchen Scharnagl. This virtual exhibition is a curatorial collaboration with South Florida-based art and technology organization, Interactive Initiative.
Challenging the divide between art and science, Biological Futurism explored topics of hybridization, environmental biology and cellular interaction through art. Evoking memories of curio cabinets within archetypal science museums, The Frank reinvented 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 danced across gallery walls and escape the constraints of time and place.In celebration of 'Biological Futurism,' The Frank hosted free virtual art workshops, lectures, tutorials and storybook readings.
