Science & Art Cabaret: Illuminating Nano

Ninth Ward at Asbury Hall

Science as you have never seen itbefore: out of the lab and into the underground!

Illuminating Nano

Presented by the University at Buffalo and Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, the Science & Art Cabaret is an entertaining mash-up of cutting-edge science with art, music, poetry, and performance. Held in the Ninth Ward at Babeville's Asbury Hall, the Cabaret is all about connections: order a drink at the bar and hear top university researchers discuss their work in context with creative minds from the Arts and Humanities. We pick a topic and look at it from all angles.

This November, we illuminate how light interacts with nano-scale materials causing beautiful, strange and very useful effects. How do nanostructures in butterfly wings create colors? What makes Graphene so special that it deserved the Nobel prize? What is the potential of nano-science for biology and medicine?

Sarah Sutton
Knots and Pulses

This exhibition by Ithaca-area artist Sarah Sutton features a series of monochromatic oil paintings that combine representational imagery with distortions and abstractions that create scenarios in flux. They are essentially landscape paintings, but Sutton's treatment of the landscape toys with its sense of space and the notion of the built vs. the natural environment.

Katie Bell
Abstract Cabinet

Katie Bell’s exhibition is a site-specific installation conceived of as a one-act drama starring anonymous artifacts. Functioning like a theatrical set, the gallery holds static characters that reference the interior architecture of corporate and commercial spaces. Sculptural objects are often fractured or untethered to a contextual structure. Functioning as a whole, the individual artefacts are a nod to players on a stage, held captive in space and time.
