The Art and Science MA course at Central Saint Martins is the first of its kind in the UK and encourages exploration and investigation into the relationships between art and science. In conjunction with their degree show (24-29 May), the course is hosting an afternoon symposium of presentations, discussion and debate.

Highlights of the symposium addressing the theme of ‘State of Matter; Collisions and Connections in Art and Science’, include an outstanding panel of guest speakers: Sir Jonathan Miller CBE, doctor, artist, director, writer, and curator; Dr Daniel Glaser, Director of Science Engagement at the King’s Cultural Institute, King’s College London, and Ariane Koek, Clore Fellow and Director of Collide@CERN, plus presentations by the graduating students from the MA Art and Science. Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion about the value of art and science research and practice, including speakers and audience participation.

Throughout the symposium, the subject of art and science as an interdisciplinary practice will be probed, scrutinised, questioned and debated.

There will also be complementary performances before and after the symposium and opportunities to participate in activities and workshops run by graduating students from the MA Art and Science.
