#SHU_Libraries The Walsh Gallery will be hosting a Panel Discussion on Art-Science Dialogues in the 21st Century. This is an interdisciplinary program in association with the exhibition “Strange Attractors” and will be held in Walsh Gallery on Friday, March 8th, 7pm–9pm.
“Strange Attractors” explores the intersection of art and science in our era of increasing interdisciplinary dialogue. Both the panel and exhibition were conceived as an extension of a symposium hosted at New York City’s CUE Art Foundation in November 2017 that addressed ways in which an art-science alliance might contribute to the larger cultural discourse.
Panelists include: Luis Schettino, Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Lafayette College; Farzad Mahootian, a philosopher and religious studies scholar and Faculty of Liberal Studies, New York University; and Carrie Rohrman, author of “Choreographies of the Living” and Associate Professor of English at Lafayette College. The panel will be moderated by Taney Roniger.
The objective of the panel and exhibition is to consider ways in which the arts and sciences might join forces to pursue common goals. Both are designed to foster a creative space in which students, artists, scholars, and members of the community can engage with art through interdisciplinary frameworks.
The panel discussion and exhibition are free and open to the public. A full-color catalogue with essays by Taney Roniger and Jeanne Brasile is available at Walsh gallery. The exhibition is presented with generous support from the internationally renowned The Robert Lehman Foundation and the Essex County Arts Council, through a re-grant of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, A Partner Agency of the National Endowment of the Arts.
“Strange Attractors” Exhibition: January 14 – March 8, 2019
Panel: Friday, March 8th 7pm–9pm
SNOW DATE : Saturday, March 9th 7pm–9pm
Gallery hours: Mon–Fri 10:30am to 4:30pm
