Event description
A symposium dedicated to the junctures of art, science, and technology.

About this Event

Inspired by the traveling exhibition Dimensionsim: Modern Art in the Age of Einstein, an all-day symposium will look at the exciting junctures of art and science, and more broadly, interdisciplinary work at the university. In two thematic panels, artists, physicists, philosophers, mathematicians, and others, will grapple with the topics of “Technology & Culture” and “Chance.” Moderated by Ellen Levy and Charles Keeton, the panels are composed of Rutgers faculty who embody these progressive approaches at our university. Audience participation is encouraged.
