Embark Gallery is a San Francisco exhibition space dedicated to showing the work of current and recently graduated MFA students. This summer they launched R&D projects, a series of research-intensive fellowships in collaboration with local nonprofits. The two fellows this summer, Tanja Geis and Christopher Nickel, worked with the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center and the Internet Archive to create new bodies of work currently on view.
“We are thrilled to be invited to display our work at the Science Museum. It’s exciting that we are able to access so many people of all ages and showcase some of our innovation and research. We want to highlight that learning about the science of the eye and some of the conditions that affect it is accessible to everyone whether you have full sight or not. That extends into art as well, and I have an especially keen interest in ensuring that it can be enjoyed by everyone. We will be showing the science behind that too.” - Dr. Moosajee, Moorfields Eye Hospital
