VERNISSAGE/OPENING DATE: July 13, 7 — 10 PM
By popular demand and owing to the unprecedented success of Creative Reactions Ottawa, we are bringing to you a Special Exhibition of the artworks created in the 2018 Edition of the festival!
The Creative Reactions festival is innovative and ambitious and was created in collaboration with the Pint of Science Festival. It is the initiative of «Génération DaVinci», a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the memory of the extraordinary Leonardo Da Vinci. The Festival's mission is to develop a free expression and to explore science in a playful and innovative fashion by implementing creative and scientific content.
Even though art and science are omnipresent in our society, we rarely see both together, conversing and intertwining. This community event aims to allow all audiences to observe scientific research from a new, more approachable angle. Creative Reactions proposes to go even further, using a moment of escape into the imaginative world of participating artists.
We partnered 8 local artists of visual arts — painters, sculptors/carvers — with 8 scientists from universities and medical institutes in the city of Ottawa. The artists are invited to enter the world of the researchers, discuss on their research and create art around this dialogue. Result: 8 unique art pieces, each depicting a fascinating research theme: human body and health, neuroscience, emerging technologies… and more!
