Suzanne Anker is the founder of the Bio Art Lab at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Her work explores the intersection of art and the biological sciences and investigates the way nature is being altered in the 21st century. She addresses issues concerning genetics, climate change, species extinction and toxic degradation.
Anker’s work has been shown both nationally and internationally at major museums and art institutions. She is the author and contributor to many important books including “The Molecular Gaze: Art in the Genetic Age” and “The Greening of the Galaxy”.
We are honored to showcase her visually stunning installation Astroculture at the Sculpture Month Houston sponsored exhibition Outta Space at Site Gallery Houston at the Silos at Sawyer Yards. Suzanne Anker will be at the event and will speak about Astroculture and the Bio Art movement at her installation at the SITE Gallery on Friday, October 11th.
