Objects & objectivities: Convergences in epistemic divergence

An art exhibit of paintings, photographs, and scientific imaging, featuring the work of Linda Vigdor, Ye He, and Andrew Reinmann.

Please register to attend the exhibition opening and reception on Thursday, November 21, 2019. The exhibit will be available for viewing until December 21, 2019.

It may be reasonably argued that science, at least in part, is driven by humans’ desire to control nature, as well as a belief that we can, and should (or are entitled to do so). From this vantage point comes a not unrelated notion of objectivity – that the truths of scientific knowledge and observation are unfettered by human biases. Objectivity, in this picture, is truth. The works in this exhibition present different orientations to objectivity as each investigates some aspect of the mechanisms, outcomes, and questions regarding the intersection of the brain and our environment, from different epistemological lenses.
