Abstract:
Cutting-edge artists from across the world will participate in the "Art of the Small", a juried exhibition held in conjunction with the Nanotech Commercialization Conference (www.nanoevent.org), April 4-5, 2012 at the American Tobacco Campus, in Durham, NC. Artists were invited through an open call to exhibit work inspired by nanotechnology, nanobiotech, biotechnology, genomics, DNA, and genetics. Winning artists in several categories will receive a cash award to be announced at the awards and VIP reception. The art exhibition is open to the public on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 from 5 to 7pm at Bay 7 of the American Tobacco Campus in Durham, NC.

Nanotechnology Art Exhibition at the Nanotech Commercialization Conference: COIN to Host “The Art of the Small” April 4-5, 2012 in Durham, NC

Durham, NC | Posted on March 14th, 2012

Nanotechnology is rapidly transforming industries from medicine to manufacturing to energy. Since the passage of the 21st Century Nanotechnology R&D Act by the U.S. Congress, billions of dollars have been invested in the science of nanotechnology which is rapidly becoming the business of nanotechnology, creating thousands of new start-ups, bolstering nearly every industry across the globe, creating jobs, and bringing life changing innovations to market. The field has also inspired a new category of art, whereby the forms and images of the atomic world are being transformed into new forms of art by the scientific and artistic communities.

The show will be curated by artist and NanoBusiness Alliance founder, F. Mark Modzelewski, an installation artist, who has shown at galleries around the world and curated numerous shows in Boston, Washington DC, and New York. A panel of expert judges drawn from the worlds of art, science, and science communication will select the winning entries. The art will be judged on three key criteria: depiction and representation of the theme, creativity of image representation and innovation in style or technique.

"It's inspiring to see these inventive and expressive worlds collide to create new art forms," said Griffith Kundahl, Executive Director of The Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN). "We are delighted to support and showcase this artwork at this nanotech conference in Durham, a city well-known for both the arts and sciences."

"My career has combined duel passions for art and technology," noted curator F. Mark Modzelewski. "I am excited by this opportunity to work with COIN to expose leaders in the nanotech and biotech communities to leading artists from around the world that are taking science and transforming it into art."

Dozens of entries have flooded in from leading figures in the art and science fields, from countries ranging from the United States to Cyprus to South Korea. Following the conference, images of the works from the exhibition will appear in an online gallery supported by COIN for a period of 36 months.

Sponsors for the event and exhibition include:

NanoBCA: The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) www.nanobca.org is a 501(c)(6) trade organization lead by Vincent Caprio www.vincentcaprio.org, Executive Director, dedicated to promoting the commercialization of nanotechnology and helping companies bring affordable, life-improving nanotech products to the market. Founded in 2001, the organization has been at the forefront of policy and advocacy for the nanotechnology community for over a decade.

NCBST: In 1963, the North Carolina General Assembly established the North Carolina Board of Science & Technology to encourage, promote, and support scientific, engineering, and industrial research applications in North Carolina. To meet these goals, the Board works to investigate new areas of emerging science and technology and conducts studies on the competitiveness of state industry and research institutions in these fields. The Board also works with the General Assembly and the Governor to put into place the infrastructure that keeps North Carolina on the cutting edge of science and technology.
