BAASICS.2 : The Future


In November of last year, I announced that artist-curator Selene Foster and I received a Southern Exposure Alternative Exposure Grant award for our Bay Area Art & Science Interdisciplinary Collaborative Sessions (BAASICS) proposal. Since that time, we've been working on the upcoming program, "BAASICS.2: The Future."

Last July, the first BAASICS event was met with great enthusiasm and much fanfare, so we committed to curating and producing a series of these art/science extravaganzas, each program featuring exciting artists, performers, and scientists from the Bay Area. (Click here to read more about the thinking behind BAASICS.)

Even if you're not based in the region, a general interest in the arts-science interface is reason enough to follow BAASICS. We aim to balance an ambitious agenda with good fun, and believe that BAASICS is blossoming into something truly special.

More details will follow soon, but I invite you to follow BAASICS in the following ways:

"BAASICS.2: The Future," will take place on Monday, June 18, at San Francisco's ODC Theater, with a reception to follow at Root Division, an arts and arts education organization located immediately next to the theater. Other than saving the date, there are other more "current" ways of joining in on the fun.

- Visit the BAASICS website!

- Follow BAASICS on Twitter! @baasics_sf

- Join our BAASICS Meetup group!

- Last but not least, you can like BAASICS on Facebook!
