In conjunction with her current solo exhibition, Warped SideLia Halloran and Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist Kip Thorne are joined by curator and writer Jesse Damiani to discuss their 13-year collaborative odyssey which resulted in The Warped Side of Our Universe — An Odyssey Through Black Holes, Wormholes, Time Travel, and Gravitational Waves. The book, published by Norton/Liveright and released this past October, features Thorne’s poetry and Halloran’s original art to create a new type of book that is a “shape-shifting pageant of art, science, and poetry” and doubles as a vehicle for communicating major scientific breakthroughs of our time.

The paintings presented in this exhibition are a cumulation of the friendship and collaboration between Halloran and Thorne to mobilize science, art, and poetry to explore aspects of the universe that many people are curious about: black holes, wormholes, and other strange phenomena. The exhibition features a selection of paintings published in the book alongside new, larger-scaled works representing an expanded view of each chapter in the book.
