The Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) and the Santa Fe Institute (SFI) will kick off a lecture series, Chaos to Complexity: Artists & Scientists Share Insights Into the Creative Process
4:00 PM — Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (108 Cathedral Place, Santa Fe)
The series explores the creative process in art and science.
Cochiti Pueblo artist Mateo Romero and SFI Distinguished Professor Geoffrey West will discuss how creativity influences and inspires their work – from analysis to collaboration to environment to illumination.
The event, moderated by the Institute’s Valerie Plame Wilson, offers a glimpse of how the artist and the scientist approach their work, and how the discovery process — whether it be painting, photography, or mixed-media art or the study of scale in physics or social systems — can produce that manic, creative energy that drives the process.
The September Chaos to Complexity event will be the first of several discussions with contemporary Native American artists and scientists from the Santa Fe Institute.
The event is free but a RSVP is recommended. To RSVP, contact Patsy Phillips at 505-428-5901 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
