The exhibition opens at The Box Gallery on February 26, 2022 with a preview from 7-10 pm and continues through March 30 2022. A VIP reception will be held on on March 12, 2022 and a roundtable discussion TBA. 

Tal Danino, whose research and work explores the emerging field of synthetic biology, focusing on engineering bacteria gene circuits to create novel behaviors that have biomedical applications.
The interaction of microbes and tumors is a major target of his work, where DNA sequences and synthetic biology approaches are used to program bacteria as diagnostics and therapeutics in cancer. Danino also brings this science outside the laboratory as a TED Fellow and through various science-art projects.

Danino creates visual art involving bacteria and cells and encompassing various themes, often exploring the relationship of humans to microorganisms. His works have gained significant attention and have been featured in the New York Times, The Atlantic, and Wired magazine. He has collaborated with artists such as Vik Muniz in the Colonies series, where he developed a photolithography based printing process to create intricate patterns out of both bacterial and cancer cells. Also in collaboration with Vik Muniz and created by Bernardaud was the Petri collection, a set of porcelain dinner plates depicting pathogenic bacteria.Tal has worked with other artists such as Anicka Yi, exploring concepts of biological identity. In Microuniverse, he used artistic processes such as silk screening to display a variety of petri-dish grown bacterial colonies on different color backgrounds to show their wide range of growth morphologies, from rings to fractals.




Juan Bernal, BA. in Architecture Universidad Javeriana, Bogota, Colombia 1976
“My work is about the beauty of Nature and importance of simple things; elements of nature that we usually take for granted, and whose beauty we don’t take time to observe, like a fragment of a leaf, a flower, or the way light is reflected as it strikes a drop of dew. These themes are recreated making emphasis in the geometry of nature’s designs. It is the complexity within the simplicity. The work constitutes an alarm to us all to preserve the environment that we are part of and we are relentlessly destroying, and without which we could not survive…..

Las Obras de Jose Marti / Readings of Poems by Jose Marti

Sunday, October 10, 2021 5 PM


Location: Jose Marti Park 

Reading by various leaders of the Cuban community and friends gathered at the sculpture created by Cuban artist Tony Lopez.

Jose Marti: Cuban poet, philosopher, essayist, journalist, translator, professor, and publisher, who is considered a Cuban national hero because of his role in the liberation of his country. He was also an important figure in Latin American literature. He was very politically active and is considered an important revolutionary philosopher and political theorist. Through his writings and political activity, he became a symbol of Cuba's bid for independence from the Spanish Empire in the 19th century, and is referred to as the "Apostle of Cuban Independence". From adolescence, he dedicated his life to the promotion of liberty, political independence for Cuba, and intellectual independence for all Spanish Americans; his death was used as a cry for Cuban independence from Spain by both the Cuban revolutionaries and those Cubans previously reluctant to start a revolt.
