This panel discusses whether Universities meet current needs, not just in terms of preparing students, but in supporting a resilient, adaptive society capable of resolving complex contemporary challenges. Panelists will present a range of perspectives and a set of provocations for possible alternatives, including networked and distributed institutions supporting interdisciplinary and intercultural inquiry into complex problems. This panel is proposed by the Leonardo Education and Art Forum and will include the current chair and chair-elect.

Presenters include:
Johnny Golding, Royal College of Art
Gideon Kossoff, Carnegie Mellon School of Design
Matt Ganucheau, Gray Area Foundation
Mary Watson, The New School

You’re invited to celebrate Leonardo/ISAST’s 50th Anniversary with UCLA’s Art|Sci Lab and the Beall Center for Art + Technology at UC Irvine! Event guests will be treated to a champagne and dessert reception, as well as a guided curatorial tour of the Beall Center for Art + Technology’s current intermedia exhibition “Drawn from a Score.”

"Drawn from a Score" features artists whose work emanates directly from a written, visual or code-based score. Ranging from event scores first developed by John Cage and Fluxus artists in the late 1950s to contemporary uses of code as a score for computational works, the exhibition includes drawings, sculptures, performances, video projections and computer-generated forms of art. The tour will be led by exhibition curator, longtime Leonardo member and Beall Center Artistic Director David Familian.

This event is produced in tandem with the UCLA Art|Sci Lab. Event guests traveling from the CAA Conference will have access to provided transportation with RSVP. Please specify that you are a CAA registrant so that we may provide you with detailed shuttle instructions. For guests driving themselves, parking instructions will be emailed to you upon RSVP.
