TODAY- “Bridge the Gap? 6” International Conference in NYC

The Bridge the Gap? 6 conference will be taking place Today DECEMBER 11, 11AM – 8PM in New York City t

This is a fascinating program organized by Center for Contemporary Art – CCA Kitakyushu

The conference will take place at  Storefront for Art and Architecture 97 Kenmare Street, New York, NY 10012 USA

For more info click here.

From the announcement:
BRIDGE THE GAP? is an international series of conferences that aims to create an ongoing forum between artists, scientists, designers and thinkers of the humanities in which ideas are exchanged and reciprocal stimulation and influence can occur. The first BTG?, held in 2001 in Kitakyushu (Japan) brought together 30 specialists from the arts, sciences and humanities (; the second in took place in Milan, the third in Chiang Mai, the fourth in Kitakyushu/Shanghai and the fifth in Venice. Each event involved a profound change in scale and context of the BTG? format.

By making the coffee break a central forum and by enhancing the exchange between participants, BTG? poses the question concerning the necessity of actual and virtual salons now. BTG? proposes a non-linear, non-hierarchical approach to knowledge production – to go beyond the boundaries of disciplines and to overcome the fears of pooling knowledge. Classical conferences emphasized order and stability. In contrast, we now see fluctuations instability: the unpredictable. In non-equilibrium physics, you find various notions of unstable systems and the dynamics of unstable environments. Instead of certitudes, BTG? expresses connective possibilities. The field of reflection and discussion coming from the different perspective will begin to broaden, deepen and create the ground to work in collaboration.
