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.
An ensemble of soprano, strings, piano and electronics gives voice to the mysterious neutrino in David Ibbett’s latest musical work as Fermilab guest composer. Mapping the waves of neutrino oscillation onto melodies played by the strings, Ibbett sonifies a neutrino phenomenon typically represented in abstract mathematical expressions. Hear the performance and Ibbett’s comments in this four-minute video.
From Forbes, April 21, 2020: Fermilab’s artist-in-residence and guest composer programs are featured in this article on programs that combine art and scientific research.
On Thursday, Feb. 20, the Chicago Sinfonietta’s Project Inclusion performed at Fermilab in Ramsey Auditorium as part of Inclusion Matters 2020. “Project Inclusion started in 2008 to provide promising, diverse musicians a fellowship for one to two years. The goal is to identify, train, mentor and ready orchestra musicians beginning their pursuit of a professional career — musicians from diverse backgrounds including, but not limited to, diverse racial, ethnic, socioeconomic and geographic backgrounds, that are traditionally underrepresented in orchestras.” From left: Fahad Awan on violin; Caitlin Edwards on violin; Seth Pae on viola; Victor Sotelo on cello.
From WDCB’s First Light, Jan. 19, 2020: In this 13-minute radio piece, First Light host chats with Fermilab’s newest artists-in-residence Patrick Gallagher and Chris Klapper during their visit to the lab. While the science being done at Fermilab is amazing, if you’re not a particle physicist, that work can be difficult to understand. Making it understandable is one of the goals of the artist-in-residence program.
