Title: Chemistry and Contemporary Visual Art
Abstract: Modern and contemporary artists reveal material and conceptual aspects that are shared by art and chemistry. Some artists specifically self-define their art in relationship to chemistry, while others produce work that can be recontextualized through the lens of chemistry. I will discuss the connection between chemistry and art through the specific works of artists whose works fall into these groups: these include artists who investigate chemical properties, transformation, chemical models and chemistry’s cultural impact.
