Exhibition: Max Planck Images of Science @ Goethe Pop Up Seattle
Feb 4 @ 12:00 PM – Mar 6 @ 6:00 PM

Stop by Goethe Pop Up Seattle to see Max Planck Images of Science, striking images captured from scientific research at some of the Max Planck Society’s institutions. Free & open to the public.

Science often pushes back the boundaries of the known world to explore new topics and make the invisible visible. In the process of this work, a purely scientific documentation of research objects is created. And sometimes these images feature surprising aesthetic forms and structures. They are abstract works of art from a world normally hidden to the human eye.

Each year, scientists from more than 80 research institutes of the Max Planck Society enter images showcasing their work from the most various research fields. The most spectacular images form the basis of a travelling exhibit, which has been shown with great success in a variety of locations around the world, such as the Deutsches Museum in Munich, the ars electronica in Linz/Austria, the Frost Museum of Science in Miami, the National Library of Russia in St. Petersburg, and the German Science Centre in Cairo.

In Seattle Images of Science is a collaboration between the Max Planck Society, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, and the Goethe Pop Up Seattle.

Blood Water Paint @ 12th Ave Arts
Feb 23 @ 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

In 17th century Rome, painter Artemisia Gentileschi must fight for everything—her place at the easel, her father’s respect, credit for her visionary work. But in the aftermath of rape, she must fight for her truth, buoyed by her shared experience with the Biblical women she paints. Blood Water Paint is a raw and compelling portrait of a brilliant woman whose accomplishments were buried for generations under the weight of selective history. Since its adaptation into a National Book Award-nominated novel, the original play returns to Seattle.
