The Science & Art Cabaret is an ongoing mash-up of creative and scientific tangents and ideas, intended to entertain and illuminate.

This month's theme addresses the earthly and cosmic question of our specialness—are we unique in the vastness of the cosmos or are we banal? Are we special amid the stars or only amongst ourselves?

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
