DNA (do not assume…)
Since the completion, five years ago, of the first deciphering of the human genome – the molecular design of human beings – and its assurance that an individual’s most basic essence can be identified and manipulated, a tumult of controversy has ensued. Concerns about genetic discrimination, the morality of cloning, genetic engineering and the administration of health care have underscored the issue of DNA ownership and personal privacy. The artists in this exhibition have created works that examine this controversial issue from a variety of positions. The artists include Greg Little, Larry Miller and Amy M. Youngs, among others.
Concert: 8:00 p.m., Kobacker Hall ($)
Works by Eliane Aberdam, Christopher Bailey, Frank Proto, Marilyn Shrude, Augusta Read Thomas and Terry Winter-Owens performed by The Merling Trio and BGSU faculty. The Merling Trio, a truly international ensemble combining musicians of Polish, Japanese, and Dutch backgrounds, has given numerous recitals throughout the United States and Canada. The group has commissioned and premiered works by contemporary composers to great success, leading Fanfare magazine to claim that “the composer could not ask for better interpreters.”
