Inventing Abstraction, Reinventing Our Selves

Inventing Abstraction, Reinventing Our Selves | Art and learning | Scoop.it

The recently-opened centennial celebration of abstract art, Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925 at the Museum of Modern Art, has been lauded for offering a broadly inclusive and interdisciplinary perspective on hallowed art historical terrain.[1] Alongside modernist titans like Malevich and Mondrian, the exhibition spotlights comparatively unfamiliar figures like Suzanne Duchamp, and Polish Constructivist Waclaw Szpakowski. Curator Leah Dickerman further stresses the transmedial reach of abstraction beyond the traditional domains of painting and sculpture, by foregrounding abstract photography, music, dance, and poetry, paralleling the institution’s own disciplinary re-orientation beyond painting and sculpture. Thus, notably, the exhibition features an immersive sound chamber (“Reinventing Music”) featuring six short pieces by Igor Stravinsky, Edgard Varèse, and other anti-tonal, turn-of-the-century composers, the sonic counterpart, we gather, to visual abstraction.... Patkowski, PhD Student in Art History, CUNY Graduate Center and Nicole Reiner, Independent Researcher, MA Museum Studies."

Brown University professor emerita Martha Sharp Joukowsky is at present directing the archaeological excavations of the Great Temple at Petra, Jordan. Although the excavation is funded by Brown University as part of its programs in Anthropology and the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World (formerly the Center for Old World Archaeology and Art), it is also an international and interdisciplinary project, with the active involvement of the American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) located in Amman, and the Department of Antiquities of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

MMU has provided opportunities for unusual interdisciplinary collaborations, one being links between microbiology and art. Thus art students have visited the microbiology laboratories to explore and develop project work. Science and art students worked together to design displays for the new John Dalton foyer.

FuturICT: Linking science and arts: Intimate science, shared spaces and living experiments - Springer | Art and learning | Scoop.it

J. Perelló, D. Murray-Rust, A. Nowak, S. R. Bishop

We aim to move beyond the idea of art as a tool for communicating science, towards a truly interdisciplinary practice where art and public engagement are a fundamental part of the way that science is carried out as promoted by the FuturICT project. Artistic exploration can have a scientific impact when artists act as designers, catalyzers and coordinators of experiments, which scientists interpret and respond to. We propose the creation of a travelling show, consisting of a set of core exhibits and ‘living experiments’: interactive, evolving pieces which blend artistic experience and scientific research. We also propose the creation of a new production oriented, distributed, inter-institutional research centre, focused on developing parallel relations between artistic practice and diverse fields of science. All these initiatives will be aligned with different areas of the FuturICT project, using different aspects of the Living Earth Simulator, Planetary Nervous System, and Knowledge Accelerator to support the creation of rich, interactive, collaborative experiences and in close contact with the educational and participatory platforms of FuturICT.
