NAS announces visual culture and evolution online symposium
Date:4/1/2010

WASHINGTON The Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences will co-host the "Visual Culture and Evolution Online Symposium" with the Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture (University of Maryland, Baltimore County) and Johns Hopkins University's Master of Arts in Museum Studies Program. The online symposium will take place on the Internet from April 5 through April 14.

A group of more than 30 international experts including artists, scientists, historians, ethicists, curators, sociologists, and writers will discuss at this event the intersections between the visual arts and evolution. This past year, in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his book, On the Origin of Species, a number of conferences were held around the world focusing on the impact of the concept of evolution. This symposium will be a platform to discuss both the ideas generated from those activities and the present impact of evolutionary thought on visual culture.

The symposium, which will be conducted through software designed for online courses, will be publicly accessible at http://www.vcande.org. The online format overcomes geographic and financial barriers, enabling leading figures in these fields from around the world to engage in the discussion without a major disruption to their research and practices.

Kevin Finneran, editor in chief of Issues in Science and Technology, will moderate the discussion. Issues is the quarterly policy journal published by the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and University of Texas at Dallas.

Symposium panelists:

Suzanne Anker, Chair, BFA Fine Arts Department, School of Visual Arts, New York City

Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator, Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art, New York City
