This symposium and accompanying concert will be an engaging platform for public discussions that bridge the disciplines of art and math and celebrate the innovative work by those influenced by these fields. The symposium will highlight the connection between art and science while recognizing the gender disparities in the male-dominated art world and STEM fields. The presenters, from a diverse range of disciplines including; quantum physics, education, economics, biology, music, studio arts, and architecture, will discuss their respective fields and the connections among them.
Art + Math = is presented by The University Museum of Contemporary Art (UMCA) and is curated by Bibiana Medkova, MFA Studio Art ‘20. It is made possible by a grant from the Women for UMass Amherst Fund and is in partnership with Arts Extension Service’s Arts Entrepreneurship Initiative.
The symposium will end with a free, public music performance on April 2 called Art + Math = Music featuring percussionist Ayano Kataoka and electronic artist Jazer Giles at 7:30pm in Bezanson Recital Hall. https://www.facebook.com/events/382714592488368/
