Cultures combined: Art and science
Tue 6 June 2017, 19:00 – 20:30 BST
Historically considered as complementary forms of knowledge, art and science parted ways as a result of the specialisation of the nineteenth century. Today their trajectories seem to intersect again, with a new emphasis on collaborative projects that see artists and scientists working side by side in the form of residencies, public engagement projects, and much more.
But what do art and science really have to gain from each other? Join our panel of artists and scientists for an evening of discussion on the benefits of this new (old!) way of thinking about interdisciplinary collaboration, facilitated by Chiara Ambrosio from University College London.
