  • Art Science Exchange, Mixer, Show and Launch



  • In this informal gathering, UCLA Art I Science Center director Victoria Vesna presents the concept, research and work of the recently established centre housed in two locations — Broad Art Center and the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI). She is joined by astrophyscist Roger Malina, executive director of Leonardo Journal and co-chairs of the Leonardo Education Forum, Andrea Polli and Nina Czegledy. Together they will discuss some of the most recent activities, challenges and opportunities that this internationally oriented organization is involved in. After this, Victoria will lead a tour of the NANO exhibition she co-created with nanoscientist James Gimzewski, followed by a tea reception mixer and the launch of the new edition of Filter magazine published by the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT). The edition will be on Interdisciplinarity — and how such a practice relates to collaborations between art and science.
