ART+SCIENCE: a conversation with Dan Jay

ART+SCIENCE: a conversation with Dan Jay
Wednesday, September 26 at Noon
Lamar Dodd Building Room S160

Dan Jay is a professor and dean of the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at Tufts University in Boston, MA. For 30 years he has led parallel careers in science and art and acted as a conduit between the two fields.

“As a society we have segregated art and science such that fields have become overly specialized and do not speak to the vast majority of society. This was not always so and I seek to catalyze a reunification of knowledge or at least an appreciation that disciplines can inform each other in novel ways.”

ICE Conversation: Inlets Foundation for Experimental Practices

ICE Conversation: Inlets Foundation for Experimental Practices
Wednesday, March 28 at Noon
Lamar Dodd Building Room S160

Inlets Foundation for Experimental Practices presents on their artistic practices, aesthetic philosophy, and concert programming. A Miami-based organization, Inlets organizes concert series that explore radical forms of sonic expression and unconventional performance contexts.

They perform their own works and that of other experimental artists from around the world. Their repertoire redefines the concert format, the role of the artist, and the relationship between artist, performer, and audience member. Many of their pieces are performed outdoors or in casual environments from inside retail stores to inside cars. Their art often has the effect of highlighting the profundity and complexity behind even the simplest performative actions and relationships.
