UPCOMING

ROUND TABLE ON VISUAL CULTURE IN ASTRONOMY

February 28 - 7PM

 

In the context of the exhibition, the Foreman Art Gallery organises a round table themed on visual culture in astronomy in the Centennial Theatre Lobby (Bishop's University).

The round table will be a bilingual and cross-disciplinary event, setting an encounter between two French and two English speakers, two astrophysicists and two artists. The idea is to cover the spectrum of issues concerning visual culture in astronomy, as seen by astrophysicists and contemporary artists. The conversation will cover some concepts in astronomy, the role of technology, data visualization and aesthetics.



Invited speakers:


__Robert Lamontagne, professor at Université de Montréal and director of the Observatoire du Mont-Mégantic

__Jason Rowe, professor at Bishop’s University and Canada Research Chair in Extrasolar Planet Astrophysics 

__Jean-Pierre Aubé, artist in art/science residency at Sporobole Art Centre, in collaboration with the Observatoire du Mont-Mégantic

__Bettina Forget, director of Visual Voice Gallery and artist in art/science residency at the SETI Institute
