Opening reception and lecture:

Thursday, March 5: 4:30 – 7 pm

The exhibit Emergence opens Thursday, March 5 in the Kemper Room on the upper level of Galvin Library. Sponsored by art@iit, this show continues the fascinating series of scientifically-themed art exhibits that have attracted attention all over the city.

From art@iit: “Audrius Plioplys has spent the better part of his professional life creating art while in his practice as a neurologist and neuroscientist seeking causes and cures for cognitive disorders from autism in children to Alzheimer’s disease in the elderly. His artwork is an ongoing metaphorical investigation of consciousness, thinking, and the thought process using MRI brain scan images and electroencephalogram tracings transforming the neurobiology research laboratory into an artist’s studio.  Plioplys’ mediums include photography, electroencephalograms and other scientific mappings, merged into multi-layered images, and printed in archival digital format.”

An opening reception for the exhibit will be held from 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm in the Kemper Room on Thursday, March 5. The exhibit runs through May 14, and is open any time the library is open (library hours). For more on this and other exhibits, see the art@iit site.
