Art Across Boundaries with Robertina Šebjanič

The Wende Museum is proud to support Stanford School of Medicine in presenting a new, collaborative guest speaker series entitled “Art Across Boundaries” which examines the overlap between visual arts and science and how the two areas can inspire and enrich each other. Join us online for a conversation with Robertina Šebjanič.

Robertina Šebjanič is an artist/researcher whose work explores the biological, chemical, (geo)political and cultural realities of aquatic environments and the impact of humanity on other organisms. Her projects call for the development of empathetic strategies aimed at recognising the other (non-human) species. In her analysis of the anthropocene and its theoretical framework, the artist uses the terms “aquatocene” and “aquaforming” to refer to the human impact on aquatic environments. Her works received awards and nominations at Prix Ars Electronica, Starts Prize, Falling Walls, and Re:Humanism.

She exhibited/performed at solo and group exhibitions as well as in galleries and festivals: ZKM (Karlsruhe), CCCB (Barcelona), Cukrarna (Ljubljana), Matadero (Madrid), WRO Bienalle (Wroclaw), Ars Electronica (Linz), Art Laboratory (Berlin), Eastern Bloc (Montreal), Laboratorio Arte Alameda (Ciudad de Mexico), MSU – Museum of Contemporary Art (Zagreb), MSUB – The Museum of Contemporary Art (Belgrade), MONOM (Berlin), La Gaîté Lyrique (Paris), Le Cube (Paris), +MSUM Museum of Contemporary Art (Ljubljana), Eyebeam (New York), CAAM – Atlantic Center of Modern Art (Grand Canaria) and CCD (Ciudad de Mexico).

Special thank you to Skip Victor for making this series possible.
