Catalogue Release Party and Bioart Panel: 8/16/2014

The art of CUT/PASTE/GROW has been bound with new essays in a gorgeous catalogue. Join us at Genspace to celebrate the catalogue release!

Before the party, join our panel discussion on “The State of Bioart Today.” Suzanne Anker, bioartist and chair of fine arts at The School of Visual Arts, and Nikki Romanello, bioartist and CPG contributor, will share the stage with the show’s curators.

The panel (and party) begins at 7 PM, Saturday, August 16. Genspace is located at 33 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn (Nevins/Dekalb stations).

A limited, numbered run of catalogues will be on sale at the party.
