The Time of the Flood

Tue 17.05.2022

  • LAC Hall

  • Piazza Bernardino Luini 6, 6900 Lugano

Since 2017 MASI Lugano and the IBSA Foundation for scientific research have been organising a series of conversations entitled "La Scienza a Regola d’Arte" with the aim of creating a dialogue between art and science. The first event of 2022 will take place on 17th May at 6:30 pm and will see artist Stefano Cagol in conversation with Massimo Bernardi, scientist and director of the Research and Collections Department of MUSE – the Trento Science Museum. Different perspectives, languages and viewpoints - that of the artist and that of the scientist - will combine to look at current themes such as human impact on the environment and global warming. The conversation will be accompanied, both visually and conceptually, by an overview of various works by the artist Cagol, who has been dealing with environmental themes for over twenty years through ’activist aesthetics’.
