Join the Steven Bridges, Curatorial Assistant at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, for a exhibition tour to gain a more in depth look at Cosmosis and learn the different methodologies and practices of exhibiting artists.
For more information visit the live archive of Cosmosis established by students at the School of the Art Institute in collaboration with Steven L. Bridges.
Cosmosis investigates how the cosmos and the scientific fields of physics and cosmology continue to inspire artistic production, exerting great influence on our understanding of the universe and our place therein.
The exhibition brings together a group of artists whose interest in the cultural significance of the cosmos leads in multiple directions, intersecting with the fields of aesthetics, anthropology, philosophy, and others grounded in different art-making strategies and material explorations. After all, scientific developments and breakthroughs inevitably have great cultural relevance and ramifications, often contributing to our sense of identity and role both as individuals and collectively within society. As is often the case: to look outward and beyond is also to look inward.
