Art & Research

Symposium + Exhibition

APRIL 4 – 27, 2019

Organized by the UCLA Art Sci center and the University of Applied Arts Vienna (Universität für Angewandte Kunst Wien, or informally Die Angewandte).

The two-day symposium and exhibition on arts based research aims to envision a future in which arts and design are understood to be central to the success of every complex problem.

Focus in the program will be to highlight the importance of art research and education, particularly in times of social unrest and climate change. It is through the arts that the scope of human experience around creativity, innovation, empathy, culture, and knowledge is learned, expressed, and distributed, both for the common good and the development of the individual. By highlighting collaborative research between artists, humanists, scientists and scholars at large, the symposium will attempt to demonstrate the important role of art research in academia and beyond.

Organized by Victoria Vesna, department of Design Media Arts, Art Sci center.
Confirmed participants: Gerald Bast, Cornelia Bast, Amir Baradaran, Marisa Caichiolo, Ina Conradi, Alexander Damianisch, Rose-Lynn Fisher, Gabriel Harp, Allison Leigh Holt, Dalila Honorato, Margaret Jahrmann, Iain Kerr, Terence Koh, Greg Lynn, Victoria Marks, Laura Parker, Ingeborg Reichle, Ruth Schnell, Siddharth Ramakrishnan, Jiayi Young, María Antonia Gonzáles Valerio, Linda Weintraub, Vera Wittkowsky, Dajuin Yao.
