Join us at the Nasher Sculpture Center for György Kepes’s Vision + Values Series and the Origins of Cybernetic Art 10 am – 12 pm Saturday October 13 for an open roundtable discussion about the man and his penchant for uniting disparate minds through curating, directing the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at MIT, and editing hybrid art-and-science books, such as the groundbreaking Vision + Values Series. Led by Dr. Charissa N. Terranova, this dialogue will unfold between six internationally renowned scholars of modern and contemporary art history. We will discuss the life of Kepes, a second-generation Bauhaus figure, who spent a year in North Texas before embarking on his career at MIT.
