Dialogue in Arts & Sciences: A Conversation with Albert-László Barabási and artist-in-residence Botond Részegh. Moderated by Isabel Meirelles.
Physicists and artists are both in pursuit of a deep understanding of truth. By technical or expressive means, in the lab or in the studio, physicists and artists continuously search for answers. To what extent does the friendship between scientists and artists influence their inquiry? Join us in a conversation with Distinguished Northeastern University Professor of Physics Albert-László Barabási and Transylvanian artist-in-residence Botond Részegh, moderated by Isabel Meirelles, Associate Professor of Information Design in the department of Art + Design.
Botond Részegh Residency
Transylvanian artist Botond Részegh returns to Northeastern University as artist-in-residence February 3-28. Részegh’s residency will encompass two public events: an exhibition at Gallery 360 entitled NightFall and a conversation with Distinguished University Professor of Physics Albert-László Barabási. In addition, Részegh will interact with art students in the Art + Design department and offer a workshop in the class of Professor Mira Cantor about printing techniques. Részegh brings to Northeastern his experience as an eastern European artist embedded in a rich community of artists and scientists. His artwork reflects his milleu and his anguish in the search for understanding the human condition.
