Thursday, 1 November  2018       Turner and the British Romantics

Romanticism arose in Western Europe and Russia in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth ‎centuries, in response to the neo-classicalist and rationalist tendencies. Throughout the first ‎half of the 19th century, the British painter, J.M.W Turner was known for his swirling, light-‎filled Romantic paintings of land- and seascapes .Turner was unstoppable and dominated ‎British landscape painting in a thoroughly Romantic style which was driven by the immediacy ‎of personal experience, emotion, and the boundless power of imagination.

Thursday, 6 December 2018‎         Art & Science

The interaction between art and science began in antiquity with thinkers such as Aristotle ‎whose writings formed the basis of scientific development, continued with the flourishing of ‎science and its acceptance in the Renaissance and with figures, such as Leonardo da Vinci. ‎
Today, with technological and digital progress, artists have begun collaborating with scientists ‎to create works that manipulate living tissues and produce living organisms as artworks. ‎These are artists - scientists who deal with genetic engineering, tissue culture and other ‎technologies that enable a new kind of artistic expression.
