Creators:Albano, Caterina
Description:

Exhibition, co-curated by Caterina Albano and Rowan Drury.

Crossing Over explored the topical subject of genetic manipulation and biotechnologies across art, design and science. It included the artworks of thirteen artists and designers, specially commissioned, investigating the metaphors, anxieties and potentials of this debated area of research.

The exhibition and the catalogue timely entered the debate on bioscience, reflecting a period of intense public debate and legislation. Crossing Over reflected on this moment in the history of bioscience highlighting some of the possibilities and concerns engendered by the fast advancements in this area.

External advisers to the project and contributors to the catalogue included: ethicist Prof. Richard Ashcroft (Queen Mary College, London), science anthropologist, Prof. Sarah Franklin (London School of Economics) and bio-scientist Prof. Chris Mason (University College, London).

The exhibition originally integrated art and design, and intercepted the works within the space of newly refurbished building of The Royal Institution of Great Britain, initiating an interest of the institution in contemporary art. It has since held another exhibition.

Caterina Albano wrote and edited the exhibition catalogue.
