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 ArtSci 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.
50 Years of Celebrating the Community
Almost half a century ago, kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina set out to solve the needs of a community of artists and scientists working across disciplines by using the “new media” of the time: offset print publishing. As a groundbreaking, innovative venture, Leonardo represented a unique vision: to serve as an international channel of communication among artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work. The result was Leonardo, an academic journal for artists with the peer-review rigor of a scientific journal. For 50 years, Leonardo has been the definitive publication for artist-academics, and the field has gained momentum in recent years.
Leonardo's anniversary celebrations are made possible by our international partners and led by the 50th Anniversary Committee Chair Nina Czegledy.
