BROOKLYN, N.Y., January 3, 2006 – “Missing Link: Art Meets Biomedicine,” 
an exhibition of work that highlights the connections between the arts 
and the sciences, will be on display in The Rubelle & Norman Schafler 
Gallery at Pratt Institute from January 26 through March 24, 2006. Both 
the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

Twenty-four artists and scientists from Pratt Institute, University of 
the Arts Berlin, and Charité Medical School of Humboldt University, 
Berlin, will show drawings, paintings, video, mixed media, and 
installation works.

Pratt Institute faculty whose work will be shown are Anne Gilman, Robbin 
Ami Silverberg, Tony White, and Christopher Wilde. Pratt students Ken 
Girrard, Matt Kazimierski, Vivian Lee, Greg Lindquist, Melissa Messina, 
Tara Parsons, and Tatiana Simonova also will be represented. Kenneth W. 
Aschheim, a forensic dentist, and artist Franziska Lamprecht, both from 
New York, will have work in the exhibition as well. German artists and 
scientists whose work will be shown are Ingo Bechmann, Christof Dame, 
Nicole Degenhardt, Lisa Glauer, Martin Jeuf, Achim Kramer, Stephan 
Lorenzen, Kristian Rother, Frank Schäpel, Andreas Wendt, and Käthe Wenzel.

“Missing Link” was inspired by a 2004 symposium held in Brandenburg, 
Germany, for research scientists and artists. The exhibition is the 
second in a series of cross-disciplinary exhibitions at Pratt. The first 
was “Crossing Disciplines/Drawing” last spring.

The exhibition is supported in part by the University of the Arts 
Berlin/Institute for Art in Context; Charité Medical School of Humboldt 
University, Berlin; and the Berlin Museum of Medical History. The 
project was originally conceived by Wolfgang Knapp University of the 
Arts and Cornelius Frömmel Charité Research Centers.

Visitors can enter Pratt Institute’s campus on DeKalb Avenue or on 
Willoughby Avenue between Hall Street and Classon Avenue. For directions
