From Daily Herald, Jan. 7, 2021: On Tuesday, Jan. 12, the Fermilab Art and Lecture Series will present its next virtual gallery talk on “Imagining Reality,” a photographic journey with Fermilab scientist Steve Geer. He will describe his artistic process as applied to various photographic projects that he’s exhibited in galleries and published in books and magazines.
In October 2018, Gallery 201 at Argonne National Laboratory hosted “Art & Science: More Alike Than Different.” The exhibiting artists were Fermilab 2014 artist-in-residence Lindsay Olson, 2017 artist-in-residence Jim Jenkins, Wind Flow Photography, and Fermilab Art Gallery Curator Georgia Schwender.
Visualizing dark matter is not an easy task. Although scientists have reason to believe the mysterious substance makes up about 27% of all the matter and energy in the universe, they still have yet to see it directly; they know it exists only because of its gravitational pull on the visible matter around it. An art exhibit at the Science Gallery Dublin combines art and science to illuminate the invisible nature of dark matter.
From Chicago Gallery News, Sept. 15, 2020: The exhibit “Unexpected: Lisa Goesling & Deanna Krueger” starts at the Fermilab Art Gallery on Sept. 16. While Goesling and Krueger use different materials, they both approach their art with a sense of wonder. What evolves is an energy that is not only seen but also felt.
From UChicago Magazine, August 2020: In this Q&A, former Fermilab artist-in-residence Adam Nadel talks about his “Nadelgrams,” exposing photographic paper not to light, but to electrons at Fermilab’s A2D2 accelerator.
