YSC Session: Systematic Thinking Between Art and Science

5.2.23 | 12pm–1:30pm
May 02, 2023 | 12pm–1:30pm |
Yale Schwarzman Center


Systems help artists, scientists, researchers, and scholars across disciplines organize their thoughts and the world around them—categorizing and sorting both concrete objects and abstract concepts. From symbolic languages to ethnography, from environmental surveying to the writing of Black history, how can visual art highlight different facets of this interdisciplinary approach?

Join Lead Sessionists Danielle Raad and Yechen Zhao, postdoctoral fellows at the Yale University Art Gallery, in this Session to discuss how their new installation of photography at the Yale University Art Gallery addresses the overlap between artistic and scientific methodologies.
