Online Art Panel with Richard Clar, Roger Malina, Daniela de Paulis
History changed on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik, thus marking the dawn of the Space Age. With humankind gaining access into outer space for the first time in history, the launch of Sputnik changed the way we see our planet and we see ourselves in relation to the universe.
As part of AstroArt for Global Astronomy Month 2013, Roger Malina, Richard Clar and Daniela de Paulis will discuss how art changed after the launch of Sputnik, by presenting and examining works by contemporary artists, during the live panel on 21 April from 18:00 to 19:00 UT.
The Art panel can be followed live on: https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cammbckch615ckbs1ld847stoeo?cfem=1
This event is endorsed by ITACCUS and is produced by Astronomers Without Borders and Cosmoquest.
AstroArt is an art project by Daniela de Paulis, in collaboration with Richard Clar, Thilina Heenatigala, Bob Eklund, Matthew Whitehouse and Kathleen Horner.
