Join us at the Science Center's Esther Klein Gallery (3600 Market Street – across the street from Venture Cafe) to celebrate the opening of "Socius", a solo exhibition by Philadelphia-based artist Rebecca Rutstein.
This exhibition presents the culmination of Rutstein’s three month BioArt Residency at the biotechnology company Integral Molecular in early 2021.
Her work takes a micro and macro approach to observing the spread of Covid-19, both within our bodies and in the community at large. Through large scale paintings, works on paper and an immersive sculpture, light and sound installation, Rutstein focuses on microscopic views of cellular networks, as well as public Covid-19 datasets from the Philadelphia community and beyond, documenting vaccine efficacy and racial inequities in access to health care.
THIS EXHIBITION WAS MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH GENEROUS FUNDING FROM THE EDNA ANDRADE FUND OF THE PHILADELPHIA FOUNDATION.
