9 evenings of art, science & technology
at King Street Station October 21-29, 2016
9e2 is an art exhibition and performance series exploring the intersection of art, science, and technology. Installations, performances, and discussions will feature DJ Spooky, Ellen Zeigler, Gary Hill, Tamiko & Midori Thiel, Coleman Pester, Newton Harrison, and dozens of other artists and scientists examining topics and technologies like genetics, surveillance, social media, data visualization, biology, biochemistry, ecology, and virtual & augmented reality.
9e2 commemorates “9 Evenings: Theatre & Engineering,” an iconic exhibition 50 years ago in New York that sparked a new era of collaboration between artists, scientists, and engineers. 9 Evenings was organized in 1966 by Robert Rauschenberg and Billy Klüver, and featured artists creating performances in collaboration with engineers from Bell Labs. Fifty years later, 9e2 embraces that same spirit of experimentation and collaboration with 9 evenings of new projects.
