MATTER(S) matter(s): Bridging Research in the Arts and Sciences
With their shared interests in materiality and topical issues—the dual “matters” invoked in the exhibition title—the artists in the exhibition reveal an “epistemological turn” in the arts and sciences, focusing on how knowledge is produced and how the process of production inflects meaning and interpretation. This major presentation highlights how artists and scientists work together to imagine the future, today.

Pordenone, 23 Maggio 2018 Ore 09:30 - 17:30 presso Consorzio Universitario - Pordenone FVG Se i problemi che ci assillano: ambiente, alimentazione, lavoro, povertà, salute, sono generati da una rete di fattori che si configurano in modo ricorsivo e sistemico, il pensiero abilitato alla loro soluzione sarà plausibilmente un pensiero anch’esso “a rete”.

Evolutionary creativity. The inner life and meaning of art
Generative art is a key example of a general transformation carried on by many disciplines, which are going to populate our world with increasingly different subjects.
