BOSTON, MA (May 8, 2020) — The Museum of Science announced today that actress, filmmaker, author, and model, Isabella Rossellini, will return for an encore conversation with canine expert, Brian Hare, PhD on May 26, as part of the new virtual transformation of the Museum’s award-winning programming, SubSpace: Adult Programs After Dark. This exciting new season of adult programming is an extension of MOS at Home, the virtual Museum of Science experience, which offers daily live presentations, activities, podcasts, and more, for all ages. Registration for An Evening with Isabella Rossellini in Conversation with Brian Hare, as well as the other diverse SubSpace programming, will open Monday, May 11 at www.mos.org/mos-at-home/subspace.
SubSpace is the Museum’s award-winning experimental playground for developing fresh, original, social experiences for adults. In addition to the return of Isabella Rossellini, this season of SubSpace: Adult Programs After Dark, all offered via Zoom and YouTube Live, includes Sci-Fi Book Club for the Curious, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the original multimedia play, Medusa: Reclaiming the Myth, a return performance from the Multiverse Concert Series, and a virtual talk from the pioneer of CRISPR, the revolutionary genome editing tool, Dr. Feng Zhang. The popular 18+ event series has included programming that has taken over nearly all areas of the Museum, from live podcasts and talks in the Blue Wing, including Jonathan Van Ness’s visit in February 2019 and Isabella Rossellini’s in October, to re-envisioning the Planetarium as a venue for some of the most exciting live performances in the city. These offerings are now transformed to engage audiences through a virtual medium.
“We are committed to serve our community as a convener where fascinating conversations can start, whether visitors are in our Exhibit Halls or at home,” said Tim Ritchie, President of the Museum of Science, Boston. “As part of MOS at Home, our SubSpace offerings continue to expand our digital offerings for our diverse community through thought-provoking discussion and live performances with local artists and entertainers. I am in awe of how our team has been able to create an authentic Museum experience for people at home. While we look forward to the day we can welcome people back to the Museum, MOS at Home will continue as an extension of how we can reach our community.”
Since its inception, SubSpace has been a platform for local artists and performers to engage with the Museum’s audience. The Museum is committed to continue being a resource for local artists and diverse experts to offer creative, though-provoking programming that Boston-area adults are seeking. These digital offerings are an expansion of this commitment, connecting local talent to the broader Museum audience.
“We are thrilled to continue to be a space for local and regional artists to perform and reach new audiences, despite our physical venue’s being closed,” said James Wetzel, Producer of Adult Programs at the Museum of Science. “SubSpace has always been a place for artists to experiment with our amazingly talented team and expanding the offerings online has been an exciting experiment in celebrating the diversity of our programming.”
Initial programming for the virtual SubSpace season includes:
