Beehave exhibition in #Barcelona ~ how #bees intersect with a #City [#geekgirl]

The Fundació Joan Miró presents Beehave, a project that draws on contemporary artists’ interest in honey bees and the key role these insects play in the planet’s environmental balance.

Curated by Martina Millà, the Programming and Projects Director at the Fundació Joan Miró, Beehave begins at the museum with an exhibition based on immersive installations that invite visitors to connect with the world of these insects, with which we share an age-old bond.

With the aim of sparking a citizen debate about the coexistence of humans and bees in urban settings. More than twenty artists of ten different nationalities are presenting close to sixty pieces in the Fundació and at fifteen locations in Barcelona. Most of these works have been produced specifically for the show and range from paintings to sculptures, photographs, videos, interventions, multimedia installations and performances.

The project, developed in collaboration with the Banc Sabadell Foundation and with support from Torrons i Mel Alemany, the Institut de Cultura de Barcelona (ICUB) and Kunsthaus Baselland, will be travelling to this venue in Switzerland in September. Source: Beehave exhibition info

64 Things to #Worry about, a direct line of #art to the #apocalypse. At Dublin Science Gallery [#geekgirl]

64-things-to-worry-about

Exhibit as part of in Case of Emergency at the Dublin Science Gallery…

64 Things To Worry About is a living picture. A grid of diffused lights in a deep wooden frame, designed to be hung on a wall in place of a clock, providing a heat map of the state of the world.

Each light in the 8×8 grid represents a specific danger indicator, including radiation levels, seismic activity, global warming and the use of certain critical words on social media. If most of the lights are in the blue/green range, all is well. If they start shifting to the red end of the spectrum, or turning off, then it’s time to gather your loved ones and make your peace with the world.
