Science & Art Cabaret 18.5: UNIVERSAL: A Guide To The Cosmos

The Ninth Ward @ Babeville

Professor Jeff Forshaw talks about the Big Bang and how it is that cosmologists can now dare to talk of what happened before it, when the entire observable Universe was compressed into a space far smaller than the size of an atom.

Jeff Forshaw is Professor of Particle Physics at the University of Manchester and has recently co-written Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos with Professor Brian Cox. He has been awarded the UK's Institute of Physics Kelvin Medal for explaining science to non-experts. Jeff will explain the time before the Big Bang, when the universe was compressed into a space smaller than an atom. He will take us on an epic journey of scientific exploration and reveal how we can all understand some of the most fundamental questions about our universe. This will be an engrossing lecture whatever your level of scientific knowledge.

This ongoing series is made possible this year with co-sponsorship support from the Techne Institute for Arts and Emerging Technologies in the UB College of Arts and Sciences, and grants from The John R. Oishei Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Sarah Sutton
Knots and Pulses

This exhibition by Ithaca-area artist Sarah Sutton will feature 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.
