Multidisciplinary Encounters on Complexity in Arts and Sciences - Ircam, June 10-12, 2009
IRCAM & Centre Pompidou organize three days of international multidisciplinary encounters on complexity in the arts and sciences, June 10-12, 2009.
The event comprises of a three-days scientific symposium and two art-science encounters in the evening.
The whole event takes place inside the Ircam Agora Festival, June 8-19, 2009, a major milestone in the French cultural landscape. It is also coupled with a Lars von Trier retrospective organized by the Centre Pompidou.
While the symposium will focus on conferences by prestigious scientists or art theorists, the evening presentations will give the opportunity to leading artistic personalities to confront their practices and ideology on the ground of complexity.
Physics, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, epistemology, architecture, music, painting, literature, cinema, theatre ... a great variety of topics will be explored in an interactive fashion.
Participants will take advantage of a selection of concerts during the Agora Festival program that have a unique connection to the idea of complexity.
