50th Anniversary Opening to Art Enlightening Immunology with WAAG Society

 Registration is closed for this event
Opening of the Art Enlightening Immunology exhibition featuring Marta de Menezes, Herwig Turk and Andrew Carnie. ENLIGHT-TEN is an EU funded project that provides cross- 3 disciplinary training in immunology and big data analysis. The twelve ENLIGHT-TEN PhD students investigate the function of regulatory T cells, specific white blood cells that have an important role e.g. in avoiding autoimmune diseases. ENLIGHT-TEN has invited three artists with a long-standing practice of working with scientific knowledge and artefacts to produce immunology inspired art works. The Leonardo 50 th Celebration concluded the event.

Art Enlightening Immunology will open on 30 August in Amsterdam.

Join us for the opening on 30 August 20:00 when the artists Marta de Menezes, Herwig Turk and Andrew Carnie present their work.

About Leonardo/ISAST
50 Years of Celebrating the Community

Almost half a century ago, kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina set out to solve the needs of a community of artists and scientists working across disciplines by using the “new media” of the time: offset print publishing. As a groundbreaking, innovative venture, Leonardo represented a unique vision: to serve as an international channel of communication among artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work. The result was Leonardo, an academic journal for artists with the peer-review rigor of a scientific journal. For 50 years, Leonardo has been the definitive publication for artist-academics, and the field has gained momentum in recent years.

Leonardo's anniversary celebrations are made possible by our international partners and led by the 50th Anniversary Committee Chair Nina Czegledy.
