Please join us for the dynamic Sci/Art exhibition of research featuring the work of Concordia University artists and scientists. This interdisciplinary vernissage will include a Cabinet of Curiosities, images from Concordia science laboratories, petri-dish food cultivations, and the works of artists who use scientific methods and images.

Explore the EV Building’s multi-level exhibition spaces and displays, and tour the exceptional equipment and labs our researchers use to create their artistic and scientific productions. The Cabinet of Curiosities will expose how early scientific instruments helped research and teaching at Concordia University, and the Speculative Life Lab will exhibit the latest in SCI/ART research. Learn how this equipment evolved over the years, providing increasingly accurate scientific results.
WhiteFeather will be installing a display of bioart in the Speculative Life Lab at the Milieux Institute, as part of Concordia’s Science Odyssey SCI/ART vernissage. Works featured will include mycellium architectural models by MDes student Théo Chauvirey; recent bacterial dye experiments by WhiteFeather; slime mold cultures and experiments by MA student, Tristan Matheson with WhiteFeather; ambient bacterial culture by biologist and MFA student, Nathalie Dubois Calero; yogurt and kombucha culture experiments by Comms PhD student Maya Hey, and other works in progress by lab users.
