PHILADELPHIA — “Samba Sessao: Afro-Brazilian Art and Film,” which focuses attention on the visual culture of Brazil, opens at the University of Pennsylvania’s Arthur Ross Gallery on April 7.
Collected in the late 1990s by John Axelrod and later acquired by the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the 15 paintings and three sculptures draw on the different aspects of modern Afro-Brazilian life and culture. In addition, videos will be on display as a part of the exhibit.
PHILADELPHIA — As nanotechnology becomes ever more ubiquitous, researchers are using it to make medical diagnostics smaller, faster and cheaper in order to better diagnose diseases, learn more about inherited traits and more. But as sensors get smaller, measuring them becomes more difficult; there is always a tradeoff between how long any measurement takes to make and how precise it is. And when a signal is very weak, the tradeoff is especially big.
