MPA Announces “Methods of Inquiry” Exhibition Opening
McLean Project for the Arts (MPA) will open Methods of Inquiry: Fields of Discovery on January 11, 2018 in the Bullock | Hitt Gallery at MPA@ChainBridge. This curated exhibition features pieces by six artists whose work is influenced by science. The Opening Exhibition Reception will be held Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 7:00 until 9:00 pm.
Methods of Inquiry features work by Michele Banks, Atsuko Chirikjian, Spencer Dormitzer, Leslie Holt, Susan Main, and Mark Robarge.
Referencing both the methods of discovery as well as images and concepts related to scientific fields such as chemistry, microbiology, neuroscience, physics and genetics, Methods of Inquiry embraces the commonalities that exist between science and art. Exhibited together, the works of these six artists offer varied views of the wonder found in the natural world—both inner and outer—and the processes human beings employ in order to gain a greater understanding of these wonders.
