"Art in the House of Science"

Friday, March 27 - 9:00AM to 10:45AM
Parisian Room

The intersections of art and science are increasingly relevant
to cultural dialogue. This panel will explore the role of science
institutions as the context for artistic practice.
In his oft-cited book Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution, 1959,
C.P. Snow lamented what he saw as an unhealthy polarization of
science and the arts. Fast-forward exactly 50 years and there are
numerous examples of institutions and practitioners who have
what Snow would call an "integrated attitude."What is the impact of cultural programs within scientific institutions?
What kinds of artwork have evolved and how have artists
successfully operated within these contexts? What are responses
from the scientific community?
