Presentation promises tips for exhibiting bioart

Ever wondered what it takes to plan a bioart exhibition? UWindsor professor Jennifer Willet, director of Incubator Art Lab, has been exhibiting living biological artworks in galleries and museums for over 20 years. She will share tips from her own experiences Thursday, Nov. 17, in the sixth installment of the Bio Art Hangout Kitchen series.

The series presents a virtual hangout with an invited artist or scientist performing an art-sci protocol or show-and-tell.

The current entry, “7 Tips for Designing a Bioart Exhibition,” follows Dr. Willet from her Windsor studio to Ectopia – Laboratório de Arte Experimental in Lisbon, Portugal. Managing international customs, high emotions, and multiple funding agencies, she installed a complex exhibition in seven days.

The event will stream on YouTube at 5 p.m. Thursday; tune in here. Bio Art Kitchen Hangout is presented by the Incubator Art Lab and the Iota Institute, a creative agency that supports writing and curatorial research.
