POSTPONED Symposium: evolve, emerge, enhance

POSTPONED Symposium: evolve, emerge, enhance

the confluence of art and science
*Due to the impact of the Corona Virus in Europe the museum has made the difficult decision to postpone our Symposium: evolve, emerge, enhance to a date later in June, yet to be determined. 
 
Artists, academics, biologists and creative technologists, will gather on Friday 20 March 2020 at the Paviljoen de Witte and museum Beelden aan Zee to examine the confluence of art and science and how rapidly emerging technologies are changing creative practices. It will be a chance to discuss the challenges and opportunities currently facing their respective fields. Themes for discussion will include:
  • Interdisciplinary practices, its challenges and benefits
  • Bio-art, new media through the confluence of art, science and technology
  • Post-humanism and human enhancement through artistic practice
  • Future roles of artists and scientists working in collaboration
  • New technologies and their impact on creative practice
  • Curatorial challenges and possibilities
Museum Beelden aan Zee in conjunction with the Sculptuur Instituut presents a one-day symposium. The symposium will be conducted in English.
