The Weisman Art Museum is organizing the exhibition of BioMess, an artwork by Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr of SymbioticA, an artistic laboratory at the University of Western Australia. In preparation for the exhibition, we invite scientists to propose examples of organisms in the animal kingdom that defy cultural ideas of the self, bodies, gender, sex, identity, and reproduction.

Based on these proposals, we will form a collaborative team of artists and scientists to curate the stories featured on this website. Fill out the form below, or send your examples to Weisman Art Museum’s Curator for Creative Collaboration Boris Oicherman,
