Opening reception:
Wed, June 10, 6-8 pm at apexart


In December, apexart held a worldwide open call for 250-word proposals for exhibitions. Based on the idea of creating our own franchise, we wanted to hear from the participants why the franchise should come to their town. We invited over 250 jurors to judge this unusual experiment and, in the end, a proposal from Los Angeles stood out against the 456 proposals from 65 countries that were submitted.

The winner is...

X, Y, Z, and U is an exhibition and series of discussions and workshops featuring the mapping projects of artists whose creative practices resemble field research and scientists who use DIY tactics and creative visualization to map scientific information. Through community-based activities and actions, X, Y, Z, and U asks: Where is science and how do we interact with it? Who maps information and who has access? Can anyone participate in genomic research?

Participating artists and scientists include: Kim Abeles, Kelly Jaclynn Andres, Jason Bobe, Mackenzie Cowell, Liz Kueneke, Andrea Polli and Chuck Varga

The League of Imaginary Scientists is an inventive research collective. In pairing science and art, the League seeks to formulate new methods for data expression, embodied through interactions that produce physical artifacts and accompanying scientific residues.
