Gravity conditions all forms and behaviors produced on Earth, including art.

What new artistic forms and experiences can be created if both creators and audiences/participants are free from this constraint?

Join Annick Bureaud (Director, Leonardo OLATS), Eduardo Kac (Professor and Chair of Art and Technology Studies, SAIC), and Xin Liu (Arts Curator for the Space Exploration Initiative, MIT) for a conversation on the implications of cultural production in the context of zero-gravity; moderated by Mark SubbaRao (astronomer and Director of the Space Visualization Laboratory at Adler Planetarium).
