The Artist in the Archive: The Art-Science Discoveries of Kirsten Stolle
Join the Halsey Institute staff in the galleries on October 4 at 7 p.m. for a lecture by the “Only You Can Prevent A Forest” exhibition essayist Hannah Star Rogers, centered on the intersection of art and science in the work of Asheville-based artist Kirsten Stolle.
Rogers is an Art and Science Studies scholar, curator, and poet. She received her Ph.D. at Cornell University in Science & Technology Studies, where her research concerned the intersection of art and science, particularly critiques of science in contemporary art. She explores the question of how art and science work as categories to circumscribe bodies of knowledge. Stolle’s work interrogates the global influence of chemical companies on our food supply and their consistent efforts to downplay effects of their toxic products.
