    Science, Art, and the Search for Meaning: Exhibition Opening Conversation with Dario Robleto

    Block Museum of Art

    2:00 PM McCormick Auditorium, Norris University Center

    EVENT DETAILSmore info

    For Dario Robleto, the practice of art shares a key aspiration with scientific endeavor: both artists and scientists strive to increase the sensitivity of their observations. In her contribution to The Heart’s Knowledge catalogue, Jennifer Roberts (Professor of the Humanities, Harvard University) writes that “the act of measurement cannot be separated from the search for meaning.” What are the tools that artists and scientists use to observe and measure the unknown? How might we use those tools collaboratively to construct new pathways of human understanding across time and distance? How might shared values of empathy, care, and curiosity guide such pursuits?

    In this opening conversation, Robleto and Roberts will be joined by Lucianne Walkowicz, astronomer and co-founder of the JustSpace Alliance, and Michael Metzger, Pick-Laudati Curator of Media Arts and curator of The Heart’s Knowledge, to reflect on these questions. Join us for a discussion that reaches across boundaries to examine the shared pursuit of greater understanding that binds artists and scientists.

    Drop by The Block early and join the Block Museum Student Associates in the galleries for a look at the exhibition.

    Programs are open to all, on a first-come first-served basis. RSVPs not required, but appreciated.
