On August 5th we held our first CONNECT event, Decoding the Personal. This in-conversation event explored the role that genetics has played in 3 artists’ practice: Chrystal Ding, Paloma Tendero and Jill Mueller. Each artist was interviewed as part of our CONNECT series online, prior to the live event. The event delved deeper into the impact that genetics and DNA data has had on themselves and their practice, exploring themes of inherited illness, the responsibility of telling sensitive stories, and the complexities of medical and genetic data becoming more widely available.
