Bodily Constructs explores the relationship between scientific discovery, medical advancement, and the human condition. Through the works of Amy Wetsch, Lennon Michalski, and Yoshiaki Nakamura, this exhibition provides an immersive investigation into the internal and external fragility of the human body. In placing emphasis on scientific and medical investigation, experimentation, and discovery, not only have humans been able to live with impairments, survive major surgeries, and even eradicate diseases, they have also been confronted with the reality of human life, death, and decay. Our bodies do not always respond in ways that we can understand, and even in discovery, we are confronted with uncertainty.

Public Programs:
The Menial Collection presents Bibliodérives
For the occasion of the inaugural SBBF, The Menial Collection chose a selection of bibliodérives from SAIC's program of the same name. They act as a toolkit, an unordered set of directives, instructions, or scores intended to help guide you through a collection of books and encourage collaborative learning and engagement. For the duration of the fair, visitors were invited to come play in a small version of the library.

HAIR CLUB presents The Merkin Making Workshop!
HAIR CLUB invited participants to make merkins together out of craft materials while discussing the history of merkins as well as issues related to body hair in gender and politics. 

Xerox Party
Designer/curators Katie Mancher and Joshua Gamma provided various materials + tips n’ tricks for making analog fliers and zines. This Xerox Party workshop was a preview for an exhibition and series of workshops led by graphic designer Jerome Harris during the last two weeks of January 2019.
