Monthly Meeting (Jeremiah Horrocks Memorial Lecture): Professor Andy Newsam – “Art & Astronomy: Universal Appeal”

February 21 @ 19:00 - 21:00 GMT

The February 2020 (Jeremiah Horrocks Memorial Lecture) monthly meeting of Liverpool Astronomical Society for the 2019 – 2020 (138th) session will be held on Friday, February 21st from 19:00 to 21:00.


Our guest speaker this month is Professor Andy Newsam of Liverpool John Moores University, whose lecture is entitled:

“Art & Astronomy: Universal Appeal”

For centuries science and art went hand-in-hand, but more recently they seem to have diverged into two distinct “cultures”. However, they still have much to gain from each other and in this talk Professor Andy Newsam will describe some forays by an astronomer into the world of art to try to explore challenging concepts with unsuspecting audiences. From computer music to dance, theatre to gardening shows, and exploring science from gravity and the nature of Dark Matter, to the physics of breakfast, we will see some ways in which art and science can work together, and also perhaps ask whether the two cultures are really as different as they might at first seem.
