The Laboratory at Harvard: Contemporary Artist and Leading Scientist Exhibition Space

Role: Served as Interim Director of the Lab, late 2011-2014

The Laboratory at Harvard University was an exhibition center that commissioned collaborations between famous artists and scientists, and exhibited the fruits of their collaboration. The Laboratory ran from 2010 to 2014, and later split into multiple organizations.

Contemporary artists and designers increasingly create and propel innovations at the cutting edge of science. The Artscience Exhibition program brought leading contemporary artists and designers together to develop works of art and design around science themes relevant to major science partners to The Laboratory. These works, developed in partnership with the Paris-based art and design innovation center, Le Laboratoire, were exhibited and set the stage for public exhibition evenings, conferences, and interdisciplinary discussions around issues that bridge the arts and sciences.
