Contemporary Art Explores Human Genomics

Image of a rabbit
From glowing bacteria to transgenic mice and "manimals," the Gene(sis) exhibit, on display at the UC Berkeley Art Museum Aug. 27-Dec. 7, presents artists' visions of a post-genomic future, featuring nearly one hundred works by renowned and emerging contemporary artists. In conjunction with Gene(sis), the Pacific Film Archive will present Genetic Screenings, a survey of some of the more provocative moving-image works that have engaged the genome as either focus or foil. For groups of five or more, BAM/PFA is offering special "Double-Helix Evenings," including a guided exhibit tour and film program. Admission is $10 per person. Full story.
