"Acclaimed artist Alexis Rockman and evolutionary biologist James J. McCarthy discuss how contemporary artists and scientists collaborate in order to advance and disseminate scientific discoveries. This program complements Harvard Art Museums' exhibition Prints and the Pursuit of Knowledge in Early Modern Europe, which explores the role of celebrated artists in the scientific inquiries of the 16th century. Rockman is renowned for his apocalyptic paintings depicting nature and its intersections with humanity. McCarthy bridges science and policy in his work on global climate change."
