The dialogue between art and science is a creative way of spreading scientific knowledge: art, in its multiple forms, is a powerful tool of communication, and is also very useful for describing scientific research. Scientists look at the world with an objective and rational eye, but there is another form of observation that is connected to the feelings, perceptions and emotions produced by artistic representations.

The idea of inviting prominent representatives from seemingly distant disciplines such as Art and Science to meet, and then encouraging them to speak and exchange points of view, led to the creation of the series of meetings known as “State-of-the-art Science”, which is organized by IBSA Foundation together with MASI Lugano – the Art Museum of the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland at the LAC.

An artist and a scientist speak freely in front of a large audience and compare experiences, exploring the common points and differences that characterize their respective research activities.
