Lucy Pullen: The Cloud Chamber and Related Works

Aldous Huxley once wrote that, “Science and art are only too often a superior kind of dope, possessing this advantage over booze and morphia: that they can be indulged in with a good conscience and with the conviction that, in the process of indulging, one is leading the higher life.”

Join us in exploring the higher life of art and science through a series of programs centered around the opening of a new exhibition organized by Henry Curator Sara Krajewski titled Lucy Pullen: The Cloud Chamber and Related Works.
