the cabinet project

You are cordially invited to view The Cabinet Project (April 6- May 15) at the Gerstein Science Information Centre.

The Cabinet Project is a distributed exhibition bringing to life historical, anecdotal and imagined stories evoked by scientific objects, their surrounding spaces and the individuals inhabiting them. The goal is to make the intense creativity existing inside science laboratories visible, and to suggest potential interactions between the sciences and the arts. To achieve this goal, 12 artists have turned 10 cabinets across the University of Toronto into art installations.
