Subtle Technologies 10th Annual Festival


IN SITU: Art, Body and Medicine

Subtle Technologies 10th Annual Festival: Art, Body and Medicine :: 10 years of blurring the boundaries between science and art :: May 24 - 27 :: Innis Town Hall, University of Toronto, Canada.

To celebrate its 10th Annual Festival, Subtle Technologies presents practitioners of arts, sciences and medicines, and those who study their context to contemplate how these disciplines can work together and reshape perspectives on the body. As scientific and technological breakthroughs prominently occupy our culture, we ask where the boundaries are. We investigate how we relate bodies in situ: as parts, as a whole, as systems; how we identify, map, modify, protect, violate, and heal.

Festival includes:

- Exhibitions at Ontario Science Centre and InterAccess Media Arts Centre
- Tissue Engineering Workshop for artists
- Performances ranging from butoh to dancing with robots
- 'Art, Science and the Emotional Response': An evening of discussion with bioartists and microbiologists
- Symposia featuring over 30 speakers on Art, Body and Medicine

More details to follow.

Subtle Technologies is a multidisciplinary Festival exploring complex and subtle relationships between art and science. The annual international event combines symposia, exhibitions, workshops and performances that juxtapose cutting-edge artistic projects and scientific exploration.
