A×S FESTIVAL

PASADENA, CITY OF ART + SCIENCE

A×S [ak-sis] is a two-week citywide festival produced by Pasadena Arts Council that explores the nexus of artistic and scientific inquiry, promoting experimentation and cross-fertilization between these disciplines. This interplay between scientific investigation and artistic risk-taking reflects a cultural zeitgeist that illuminates the richness and diversity of human aspiration in the 21st century.

In fall 2016 Pasadena Arts Council will present the seventh A×S Festival, a proving ground where ideas, scientific theories and leading-edge technologies converge with artistic innovation across a multidisciplinary platform of architecture, new media, visual art, music, theater, educational programs and provocative conversation. The A×S Festival is a response to our contemporary cultural condition — a concentrated exploration designed to ignite the imagination of audiences and participants alike.
