As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve in New York City, we will post news of upcoming events, dates, and details as they are determined. In the meantime, we will keep you updated on initiative developments and news from our scholars.

“The Aesthetic Brain” with neuroscientist Anjan Chatterjee and Graduate Center philosophy professors Jesse Prinz and Barbara Montero is to be rescheduled. Until then, you can get a glimpse of Chatterjee’s observations of art in the time of the coronavirus in his recent Psychology Today column.

AI and Creativity is the theme for our next roster of programs. A public conversation will bring together innovators in the intersections of art and science: physicist and author Arthur I. Miller (The Artist in the Machine: The World of AI-Powered Creativity, 2019), composer and media artist Doug Geers, and award-winning director of algorithmic theatre, Annie Dorsen. AI and Creativity will be further explored in a panel on AI and Affect as well as a conference on Algorithmic Music and Sound Art.

In other news, we’re delighted to announce the recipients of the 2020 Art and Science Connect Research Fellowship — five doctoral candidates whose dissertation projects elaborate on the interrelationship of art and science from different angles. We invite you to read an essay by research fellow Brad Fox, who explores the first eyewitness account of the deep ocean. Learn more about our fellows.
