SenseAntisense: Artist Reception w/ Talia Greene

In-person session

March 3, 2022 | 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Room: Esther Klein Gallery

This is an in-person event that will take place at the Esther Klein Gallery, located at 3600 Market Street.

An exhibition documenting the outcome of Greene’s residency at the biotech company, Integral Molecular, where she explored the ways that science has been misunderstood, misinterpreted, and willfully distorted during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The title Sense<&-#:>Antisense refers to both the scientific and everyday meanings of the words. In genetics, sense and antisense are the terms used for the two strands of DNA; antisense RNA also silences or prevents mRNA from being expressed.

The exhibition points to the media pathways through which facts about the pandemic have mutated to sow disinformation and hate, and highlights the primary outcome of her residency: an antidote in the form of a vaccine against misinformation.
