Associate Professor of Art and Architecture Christine Chin will deliver a featured presentation about her artwork on Sunday, June 12 at ArtRage, a gallery committed to breaking down boundaries and spurring social and cultural change in Syracuse, N.Y.
Her presentation will focus on her accompanying ArtRage exhibition, “In Poor Taste: the Genetically Modified Foods Kitchen.” The event will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Making humorous and ironic commentary on contemporary issues of technology and the environment, Chin has exhibited her work across the country and around the world, including at Gallery 621 in Tallahassee, Fla.; the Llewellyn Gallery at Alfred State College in Alfred, N.Y.; the Rochester Contemporary in Rochester, N.Y.; VISIVA in Rome, Italy; New York Hall of Science in New York City; Art Basel Miami in Miami, Fla.; and Canon Communication Space, Beijing, China.
Chin’s recent projects have addressed artificial intelligence, genetically modified food and alternative energy.
