Similarly to SciArt in America, their sister organization--SciArt Center—aims to provide support and promote cross-disciplinary approaches and interactions between the arts and sciences. SciArt Center is membership based and is both an online platform and a pop-up events organization (events are open to the public). With over 200 members worldwide, Virtual Exhibitions are a keystone of the organization’s promotion of its members cross disciplinary work. Virtual Exhibitions include Un-Natural Nature, The New Unconscious, and now Distinguishable From Magic—SciArt Center’s newest exhibition.
Curated by SciArt Center Curator Marnie Benney, Distinguishable From Magic features 12 member’s work including Amber Anderson, Linda Behar, Jared Vaughan Davis, Greg Dunn, Cedric Van Eenoo, Anna Fine Foer, Richelle Gribble, Constance Halporn, Alinta Krauth, Robert Krawczyk, Sam Talbot-Kelly, and Leila Christine Nadir.
The title is inspired by British science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke (1917-2008), most notably famous for co-writing the screenplay for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. His science fiction works often included chapters about aspects of science and technology aside from fantastical space travel such as computers, telecommunication satellites, and bioengineering.
