Students using art to understand life sciences—and using life sciences to explore art—will take centre stage at the Olde Walkerville Theatre on Wednesday, December 10, for “Bioart Bouffant,” billed as an art/science cabaret.
Spearheaded by students in the Bioart: Contemporary Art and the Life Sciences class, the event is a collaboration with art professor Jennifer Willet’s Incubator lab and Salon 892, and will feature performers Erin Armstrong, SEB WHIPITS, Juice Boxx and DJ Stephen Pender, as well as works by artists Jessica Brockway, Anthea Chan, Lauren Crosby, Don Demers, Angéline Desaulniers, Hannah Klingbile, Laura Laframboise, Joanne Le, Robin Luckwaldt Ross, James Masse, Michael McMaster, Melissa Moody, Amy Rae, Stuart Sparling, Wes Strain and Nicole Vien.
