Biomedical Art is more than just the sign at the crossroads of art and science. It is the fusion of content and visual display of scientific information. The careful study of the minutiae of phenomena expressed through boundary-breaking art methods grounded on a foundation of tradition, convention, and communication.
Within the Biomedical Art Department at CIA there is an underlying collective consciousness that nurtures the students while each others’ work. This diverse and supportive group vibrates with a gentle competitiveness that drives each of the students in their pursuit of perfection. This exhibition is an opportunity for the re-conceptualization and re-contextualization of Biomedical Art as fine art. The goal of the collective work is to allow the rich detail and abstract beauty of science to speak for itself through individual aesthetic narratives.
The 2013 graduating Biomedical Art class at the Cleveland Institute of Art is inspired by the sciences such as anatomy, medicine, biology, anthropology, and zoology, among other diverse areas. Visually communicating these important concepts in a clear, refined manner is the goal of the Biomedical Artist. The CIA BMA students have interests and specializations ranging from educational game design, interactive mobile applications, stunning animations, sculptural exhibit design, as well as socially conscious and informational art as activism.
The opening reception is from 6-9pm on May 3, and the exhibition runs through May 27.
