At first thought, artistic and scientific practice might seem unrelated: one is focused on expression, the other on data.

Yet the similarities between the way artists and scientists work far outweigh their differences. The scientist’s laboratory and the artist’s studio are places where learning is achieved through open-ended inquiry, a never-ending cycle of thinking and doing, and the belief that failure and revision is an inherent part of the process. This exhibition celebrates artists represented in SJMA’s permanent collection who thrive at the interface between art and science.

In the Koret Family Gallery’s interactive Art Learning Labs, visitors are invited to make observations, ask questions, and participate in creative experimentation.
