ArtScience Soiree: Collaboration across Disciplines

9 June 2016, 6.30–9.30pm Powerhouse Museum

As part of Vivid Ideas, the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) will be hosting the ArtScience Soiree ― a free networking event for practicing artists and scientists interested in cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Join us in celebrating the passion, methodology and creativity shared by these two disciplines and help generate new relationships between them.

The event will feature:

  • Science-inspired art installations and performances by artists Tully Arnot, Joe Duggan, Elizabeth Eastland, Emily Parsons-Lord and select videos from Aphid’s project Forever Now
  • Creative presentations by scientists William Gladstone (Marine Biology/UTS), Lisa Harvey-Smith (Astronomy/CSIRO), Michael Kasumovic (Biology/UNSW), Astrid Zeman (Cognitive Science/Macquarie University) and artists Luke Hespanhol (Digital Media/UNSW), Eugenie Lee (Installation) Lisa Roberts (Multimedia/Living Data) and Erica Seccombe (Multimedia/ANU)
  • Speed-meet sessions where you can connect, create and collaborate with researchers and artists from various fields
  • Conversations about what resources are available to help you realise your ArtScience collaborations
  • Music by Mirã Bõru
