I am happy to be part of this critical dialogue of the art and science connection: 

Strange Attractors: Art, Science, and the Question of Convergence

A Multi-format Symposium.
Co-organized by CUE Art Foundation and Taney Roniger.
November 4 – 15, 2017.

With the current groundswell of interest in interdisciplinary thinking sweeping the arts and academia, the intersection of art and science is becoming increasingly promising terrain for many contemporary artists. But with the two fields representing such distinct epistemological enterprises, prospects for a mutually beneficial partnership remain unclear. The objective of this symposium is to examine some of the underlying assumptions and motivations of this burgeoning movement, to clarify what its practitioners seek to accomplish, and to consider ways in which an art-science alliance might contribute to the larger cultural discourse of our fraught and complex century.

Co-organized by the CUE Art Foundation and Taney Roniger, Strange Attractors features a panel of distinguished artists, scientists, writers, and curators in a ten-day online dialogue, initiated by a live lecture given by art historian James Elkins at the Foundation’s Chelsea gallery. Both components are free and open to the public, and readers of the online symposium are encouraged to contribute through moderated comments. Strange Attractors concludes with a social gathering at the Foundation gallery welcoming all participants. As a follow-up to the conference, selected participant essays will be published in the December/January issue of The Brooklyn Rail which will be dedicated to the intersection of art and science.

Full details to be announced.

Opening Reception:

    Friday, December 2, 7–9pm
NURTUREart, 56 Bogart Street, Lower Level, Brooklyn NY
NURTUREart presents Interference, curated by Steven Salzman and featuring artists Johnny Abrahams, John Aslanidis, Daniel Hill, Gilbert Hsiao, Julie Oppermann and Jessica Rosner. Interference explores the physical phenomena of the superposition of two or more waves resulting in a new wave pattern. Waves of air, sound and electro-magnetism—and their subsequent interference patterns—permeate our environment. These phenomena surround, bombard and penetrate our bodies continuously. The artists in this exhibit explore these omnipresent patterns as a visual motifs, including hard-edge geometry, gestural improvisation, and handwriting. Inspirational sources include optics, physics, music and meditation. The ensemble of works on view grasp the pervasive hum of interference radiation to capture and re-present it as analysis visually and poetically.

Curated by Jonathan Lippincott, CHROMATIC SPACE is the third of three exhibitions held this year in celebration of the 80th anniversary of AMERICAN ABSTRACT ARTISTS. This exhibition seeks to illuminate the ways that artists use color to explore the possibilities of depth, scale, atmosphere, and movement, and to create the content and iconography in their work. From the rigorous flatness of hard edge painting to the celestial expanse of color field work, the use of color activates a work of art in an exciting variety of ways.

What Lies Beneath: Panel Discussion


Join us on Thursday June 26th for a conversation with four of the artists showcased in our inaugural show, “What Lies Beneath.”

Daniel Hill is a painter inspired by the scientific method and the physics of sound (our event image). Jonathon Wells, geologist and photographer, creates photo-geoloic composites of what lies below the earth’s crust. Jonathan Feldschuh creates images based on the Large Hadron Collider as well as cosmic radiation patterns based on NASA data. Steve Miller prints and paints X-rays of the floura, fauna and wildlife found in the Amazon, the movement of ions across cellular membranes, and the structure of proteins, to name a few.

The panel will be moderated by SciArt Center executive director Julia Buntaine.

Admission is free for qualifying members and $5 for the public.
