UMLAUF Sculpture Garden & Museum presents The UMLAUF Prize 2016 Exhibition opening reception
The UMLAUF Prize 2016 Exhibition Opening and Insights program presents UT-Austin MFA graduate Elizabeth McClellan’s performance-based installation “EchindaLabs” featuring science and the art of genetic modification. Guests will learn about genetic skin modifications and explore the possibilities of using viral biomes to decorate the skin through a series of videos, brochures, photographs and human interaction with the EchindaLabs receptionist. McClellan created the experience based on the recent innovations in gene editing technology and her fascination with its implications on politics, science and the future of our bodies.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 29, 2017.
