Solo Exhibition: September 7 — November 3, 2018, Artist In Residence: September 7 — October 6, 2018, Encinitas, CA - Lux Art Institute is pleased to announce Lia Halloran's residency. Investigating the junction of art and science, she produces photographic images without the use of a darkroom or camera. Her cyanotypes allude to the history of science, the role women played, and the translation of scientific theory into a visual dimension. Her practice ignites a dialog between art and science exploring how the two disciplines push and innovate the understanding of the other.
