The Cabinet Project
a multisite project by the ArtSci Salon collective
April 6 – May 15, 2017 (Reception on April 6)
University of Toronto, St. George Campus
We are delighted to launch The Cabinet Project, a distributed exhibition featuring 11 arts installations at the intersection of Arts and Science, which will be mounted by 13 artists in abandoned or underutilized cabinets across the University of Toronto (St. George Campus).
With this project, we wish to emphasize the rich ecologies formed by science, its scientific spaces, its labs, and its instruments. Through processes of collaborations with the sciences and their protagonists, we believe that the arts have a crucial role in revealing, communicating, and even realizing these ecologies. As well, we wish to show the connection of scientific objects and institutional spaces with the social and urban fabric of the city.

During the past few months, the artists involved in this project have been interacting with a variety of scientific objects from the University of Toronto Scientific Instrument Collection (UTSIC) and have engaged with the disciplines of microbiology, mathematics, geometry, microscopy, physics and public health.
We are proud to welcome the following artists to The Cabinet Project:
Catherine Beaudette; Dave Kemp & Jonathon Anderson; Joel Ong & Mick Lorusso; Microcollection; Nicole Clouston; Nicole Liao; Nina Czegledy; Rick Hyslop; Stefan Herda; Stefanie Kuzmiski
