2017 Art / Science Collaborations
This year the Cape Cod Modern House Trust (CCMHT) and the National Park Service (NPS) are hosting a residency that invites artists to work alongside NPS scientists in the field.
Guest curators, Dylan Gauthier and Kendra Sullivan, visual artists and members of the Brooklyn-based art collective Mare Liberum.have selected a group of ten artists and writers working at the intersections of art, science, ecology, and land and water based practices.  The visiting artists will spend two weeks in May and two in October in the modern houses, (owned by the NPS and restored by CCMHT) with public presentations of their work to follow.
From mapping the sea floor and tracking the health of marshlands, to studying Hognose snakes and Spadefoot toads, there are over 70 science research projects going on at any given time in the Cape Cod National Seashore. The Modern houses (owned by the NPS and restored by CCMHT) also served as laboratories, for their original inhabitants who sought empirical data to inform new approaches to visual art, curation, and the design of furniture, housing and urban spaces. This mid-century creative community that worked and shared ideas in the Cape’s piney woods and isolated beaches included: Marcel Breuer, Serge Chermayeff,  Olav Hammarstrom, Paul Weidlinger, Walter Gropius, Xanti Schawinsky, Konrad Wachsmann, Constantino Nivola, the Saarinen and Kepes families and Florence and Hans Knoll, among others.
This project was organized by Peter McMahon, Executive Director of CCMHT and Principal of PM Design in South Wellfleet in the spirit of artist and MIT professor, Gyorgy Kepes, who sought to bridge the gaps between art, design and hard science to catalyze fresh insight.
