Art Inspired by Astronomy: Maria Popova and Lia Halloran in Conversation
Artists Lia Halloran and Maria Popova in conversation about the exhibition "Deep Sky Companion," currently on view at Cahill Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics.
Maria Popova is a reader and a writer, and writes about what she reads on Brain Pickings, which is included in the Library of Congress archives of culturally valuable materials. She has also written for The New York Times, Wired UK, and The Atlantic, among others, and is an MIT Fellow.
Lia Halloran is an artist whose work often uses concepts in science as a bounding point for her work—including several interdisciplinary projects with a variety of collaborators—to create works, curate exhibitions, write, and teach on art and science intersections. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and musums in the US and Europe and acquired by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum New York, The Speyer Family Collection, and The Progressive Art Collection among others.
This event is free and open to all; no tickets or reservations are required.
