When science meets art
“Where Science Meets Art”
“THE GREATEST SCIENTISTS are artists as well,” said Albert Einstein.
“For as long as artistic expression has existed, it has benefited from interplay with scientific principles – be it experimentation with new materials or the discovery of techniques to render different perspectives. Likewise, art has long contributed to the work and communication of science.”
This piece is a nice summation of the contemporary focus of artists working with science. Here are four that make art scientific fascinating.
Dr. Stéphanie C. Jeanjean is an art historian and curator who received her MA from Bourgogne University, in France, and her PhD from the Graduate Center of CUNY, The City University of New York. Her recent work has addressed the relationship between the viewer and the screen and the institutionalization of video art and the projected image, and more specifically feminist militant video and Art Sociologique (from France in the 1970s), and more recent relational and new media contemporary art. She has spoken on these topics in various conferences in France, USA (CAA, SECAC), UK (Tate Britain), and South Korea (KAIST). She has published in journals (last in Afterall, London, summer 2011) and has curated screening of early French video at The Kitchen (NY, 2012) and Brecht Forum (Brooklyn, 2014). Her most recent publications are the reprint of her essay: “Disobedient Video in the 1970s: Video Production by Women’s Collectives” in Hilary Robinson ed., Feminism-Art-Theory (2015) and “Socio-Ecologico-Critico Intruders in the History of Early French Video” in François Bovier and Adeena Mey eds., Cinema in the Expanded Field (2016). She currently teaches Modern and Contemporary Art History at Pace University and New Jersey City University and is a Gallery Educator at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
