The Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology at Connecticut College is pleased to present Intersections: the 16th Biennial Symposium on Arts and Technology.
The aim of the symposium, now in its thirty-second year, is to create a forum for multidisciplinary dialogue at the intersection of arts, technology and contemporary culture. The symposium brings artists and researchers from a wide range of fields together to engage, interact and share ideas as they present new works, research and performances in a variety of formats. Featured events include a keynote address by Krzysztof Wodiczko, a Natalie Bookchin exhibition, several commissioned multi-disciplinary works, paper presentations, workshops, gallery exhibitions, music concerts, installations, screenings, public interventions and live media performances. Newly commissioned works will be presented alongside selected works by symposium participants.
