Back from a hiatus, the 2017 Contemporary Series will examine the role that artists have in engaging with different scientific disciplines and presenting information in new and dynamic ways to the public. Although they are now two distinct fields, for centuries science and art were closely intertwined. Contemporary artists are starting to once again bridge the divide and unite the two fields. In 2017 the Museum of the Southwest presents four different artists whose photographs, sculptures and multimedia installations bring together art and science in the American Southwest.
Robin Germany (BA Tulane, Philosophy, MFA University of North Texas) was born in Houston and grew up further south in the small town of Friendswood, Texas. She has taught photography at Texas Tech University in Lubbock since 1996. Through the lens of philosophy, Germany makes photographs that inquire into the nature of being human and the humanness of nature. Her most recent works of art are an exploration of the waters in Texas as a border between the human and natural worlds.
