    Join us for a lecture by visiting artist Dario Robleto.

    Robleto is an artist, researcher, writer, and teacher. His research-driven practice results in intricately handcrafted objects that reflect his exploration of music, popular culture, science, war, and American history. His work has been exhibited widely and is held in prominent collections including the Menil Collection and the Whitney Museum of American Art. His work has been profiled in numerous publications and media including Radiolab, Krista Tippet's On Being, and The New York Times. He has been an artist-in-residence at institutions such as the Smithsonian Museum of American History, the SETI Institute, the Robert Rauschenberg Residency, and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. In 2015 he joined a distinguished team of scientists as the artistic consultant to “Breakthrough Message”—a multi-national effort that aims to encourage intellectual and technical debate about how and what to communicate if the current search for intelligent life beyond Earth is successful. In 2016 he was appointed as the Texas State Artist Laureate. In 2020, he was a research consultant to the popular science television series, Cosmos: Possible Worlds, which aired on National Geographic and Fox. He is currently serving as Artist-at-Large at Northwestern University's McCormick School of Engineering and the Block Museum of Art, and is working on his first book, Life Signs: The Tender Science of the Pulsewave, published through the University of Chicago Press and co-authored with art historian Jennifer Roberts, the Elizabeth Cary Agassiz Professor of the Humanities at Harvard.
