Please join us for a conversation between Eduardo Navarro and Tom Banks.
Tickets $5 via Eventbrite
Tom Banks joins Eduardo Navarro to discuss the Holographic Principle and its interpretation of the things we experience with our senses. Drawing upon theoretical principles informed by quantum physics, Navarro created the series of drawings Into Ourselves in response to these ideas. During the course of the conversation, Navarro will do some simple drawings to illustrate the concepts.
The Drawing Center’s Eduardo Navarro: Into Ourselves presents a new series of edible drawings, inspired by quantum physics––specifically the Holographic Principle, which describes how information in the universe can only be scrambled but never destroyed. During the course of the exhibition, a soup will be made that will dissolve the drawings to make them digestible.
Eduardo Navarro is an artist based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Recent solo exhibitions of Navarro's work have been presented at the Museo Tamayo, Mexico City; Highline, New York; Universidad Torcuato di Tella; Faena Arts Center, both in Buenos Aires; and Der TANK - Institut Kunst HGK FHNW, Basel. His work has also been included in group exhibitions at the São Paulo Biennial, Brazil; SEMA Biennial, Seoul, Korea; Frieze Projects; New Museum Triennial; and e-flux, all New York; Sharjah Biennial, UEA; Cuenca Biennial, Ecuador; Mercousur Biennial; and Mercosul Biennial.
Tom Banks is a Professor at Rutgers University in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Prior to his position at Rutgers, he taught at Tel Aviv University in Israel, and the University of California, Santa Cruz. His research, which concentrates on particle physics and cosmology, drove him to develop with his collaborator W. Fischler of the University of Texas at Austin, the theory of Holographic Space Time (HST).
