MSU Broad | MATTER(S): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences @ Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum
Oct 17 2018 – Feb 3 2019 all-day
MSU Broad | MATTER(S): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences @ Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

This exhibition brings together new and recent projects by participants in the BRIDGE Artist-in-Residence Program at Michigan State University—a three-year-long initiative connecting international, cutting-edge artists with faculty and students across the university’s many colleges. With their shared interests in materiality and topical issues—the dual “matters” invoked in the exhibition title—the artists and their collaborators address a wide range of phenomena through interdisciplinary approaches to research, experimentation, and knowledge production. The exhibition thus reveals an “epistemological turn” in the arts and sciences, focusing on how knowledge is produced and how the process of production inflects meaning and interpretation. This major presentation highlights the incredible resources the university has to offer, and how artists and scientists work together to imagine the future, today.

Featured artists include Art Orienté Objet (Marion Laval-Jeantet & Benoît Mangin), Evelina Domnitch & Dmitry Gelfand, Tagny Duff, HeHe (Helen Evans & Heiko Hansen), Zbigniew Oksiuta, Kuai Shen, Stelarc, and Sissel Tolaas.

MATTER(S) matter(s): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences is co-curated by Steven L. Bridges, Associate Curator, and Jens Hauser, Guest Curator and MSU Distinguished Affiliated Faculty. Support for this exhibition is provided by the MSU College of Arts and Letters; MSU BRIDGE Artist-in-Residency Program, directed by Adam Brown, Associate Professor; Science Gallery Lab Detroit; Goethe-Institut Chicago; and the Eli and Edythe Broad endowed exhibitions fund.
