not all of it is interesting as... What is the meaning of "But while ‘Sci-Art’ sometimes seems to be all the rage, not all of it is interesting as art" in this paragraph? "If scientists don’t always ‘get it’ when it comes to contemporary art, an increasing number of artists are beginning to ‘get’ science and there are many examples of excellent works which have been inspired by it. But while ‘Sci-Art’ sometimes seems to be all the rage, not all of it is interesting as art. Indeed, I do not believe that art can directly be ‘about’ science – lectures, books or discussions are more successful at presenting explanations or stimulating debate." Does it mean "while ‘Sci-Art’ sometimes seems to be very popular but it is not as interesting as art"?

Yes, in terms of 'seems to be very popular', but no in terms of 'is not as interesting as art'. It is saying that Sci-Art may be interesting, but not all of it is interesting when considered purely from an artistic viewpoint. Or in other words, if you ignored any scientific interest factor, and considered it only as art, some of it is not at all interesting.
