is a major traveling exhibition that showcases powerful new artwork created in direct response to recent developments in human genomics. This research is having an enormous impact on artistic practice, providing new tools, processes, materials, and issues for consideration. Organized by the Henry Art Gallery, Gene(sis) seeks to bridge art and science by elucidating technical advances for a lay audience and examining ethical issues raised by genomic research. Recognizing the complexity that these new opportunities present, curator Robin Held developed the exhibition during three years of on-going dialogue with geneticists, artists, science historians, medical ethicists, and art historians. In the spirit of fostering dialogue across disciplines, an extensive array of public programming is slated at each tour venue in conjunction with the exhibition. Gene(sis) seeks to encourage public discourse and deeper understanding of genomics and its potential impact on our everyday lives.
