Last year, the following three projects were awarded with the Designers & Artists for Genomics Award: Living Mirror, Fish Bone Chapel and Ergo Sum. The four winning artists have worked in the past six months with scientists in the lab on unique installations with stem cells, light-emitting GMOs and zebrafish. The three installations can be seen at Raamsteeg2, a new platform in Leiden providing a meeting place for art and science, starting from 14 September 2013.
Programme 14 September 2013
At 17.00 hrs the opening of the exhibiton starts (with drinks). Belgian cultblogger Régine Debatty (of We Make Money Not Art) interviews the winning artists on the spot. Also on show: a mini photo expo with portraits of the DA4GA artists of earlier editions. Plus: you can buy the interesting book Bullet Proof Skin by Jalila Essaïdi with a discount!

(Curious about the cooperation between artists and scientists? At 21.00 hrs there will be a live talkshow at the ‘De Nacht van Kunst & Kennis’ (Night of Arts & Knowledge), with guests from the arts, science and design world. Early Bird tickets for the complete programme, including this talkshow (in English!) and the afterparty at the Stadsgehoorzaal, are for sale here for 7,50 euro per person.)
