Exhibition presenting UT-Austin MFA graduate Elizabeth McClellan’s performance-based installation “EchindaLabs” featuring science and the art of genetic modification. When museum visitors walk onto the set of EchindaLabs they will learn about genetic skin modifications and explore the possibilities of using viral biomes to decorate the skin through a series of videos, brochures, photographs and human interaction with the EchidnaLabs staff. Former Crystal Bridges Executive Director, Don Bacigalupi, awarded McClellan this year’s UMLAUF Prize, and the exhibition continued until January 29, 2017, also featuring new works from previous Prizewinners such as Gracelee Lawrence & Ryan Hawk (2015), Adam Crosson (2014), Stephanie Wagner (2007), Katalin Hausel (2006), Mark Schatz (2005), and Holly Fisher (2004).
