Getty: Can Art and Science Solve the Most Complex Challenges of the 21st Century?

Getty: Can Art and Science Solve the Most Complex Challenges of the 21st Century?. “Forty-five cultural, educational, and scientific institutions throughout Southern California received over $5 million in exhibition research grants by the Getty Foundation to prepare for the next edition of the region-wide arts initiative Pacific Standard Time, scheduled to open in 2024. The landmark series will return with dozens of exhibitions and programs focused on the intertwined histories of art and science, past and present. Together, they address some of the most complex challenges of the 21st century—from climate change and environmental racism to the current pandemic and artificial intelligence—and the creative solutions these problems demand.”

A Database of Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibitions

Every time I decide I’m going to switch my Google Alerts from News sources only, something like this pops up: A Database of Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibitions. From the front page: “The first exhibitions of Dead Sea Scrolls took place in Washington (DC) around two years after their discovery. Since then, over a hundred scrolls exhibitions have taken place all around the world. The World Expo ’58 in Brussels (Belgium), the 1960 exhibition in Buenos Aires (Argentine), and the exhibition in Singapore in 2009 are just a few examples. This database aspires to include them all, and in doing so, proving a robust tool for researchers and journalists.”
