The China Shop: Artists in Science Labs
The China Shop is a new faculty-led initiative funded by National Endowment for the Arts’ Art Works project. Conceived by UC Davis professors Timothy Hyde (Art Studio) and Jiayi Young (Design), this unprecedented two-year endeavor creates a space for challenging inquiries at the intersection of disciplines. Playing off the idea of “a bull in a china shop,” artists are invited to work with scientists and their lab staff to repurpose the tools and infrastructure of scientific research in unexpected ways. The paired artist and scientist will discuss their creative work, system of collaboration, and works in progress in two public conversations.
This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. We thank the Dean’s Office of Letters and Science, the Office of Research, and the Manetti Shrem Museum for their generous matching support. This event is also a part of the Leonardo Art, Science, Evening Rendezvous (LASER) series and is published in ARTECA, a curated spacefor essential content linking the arts, sciences and technologies (MIT Press).
