Pieces are selected which feature the use of counterpoint, a compositional technique used by Rubinoff extensively in his sculpture work.

Jeffrey Rubinoff has stated that he perceives: "Music as sculpture in elastic space, and sculpture as music in plastic space."

All concerts and park openings are free of charge and held in the outdoor amphitheater (weather permitting).

June 25-28th, 2018 | Company of Ideas Forum

Art and Knowledge 1900-1950
Modernism has traditionally been defined in part by its withdrawal from other artforms or disciplines, its quest for formal purity, and its embrace of autonomy as an aesthetic and political ambition. In recent decades, however, it has become increasingly clear that twentieth-century art was in fact marked by an unprecedented degree of cross-fertilization, between different artforms and fields of knowledge.

These interdisciplinary conversations shaped both the form and content of modern art from the very beginning of the century: philosophical discourses inspired Europe’s Expressionist movements; scientific and mathematical breakthroughs informed the pioneers of abstraction; the rise of psychoanalysis influenced the meanings and methods of Surrealism; and spiritualist beliefs – particularly those found in Theosophy and Christian Science – motivated a great deal of non-objective art.

This year’s Forum is the first in a series of conferences that will explore the relationship between art and knowledge in the twentieth century. It concentrates on the first half of the century, with particular interest in art’s claim to philosophical, scientific, and spiritual knowledge. The ideas that arise from it will form the basis of a volume of essays, edited by James Fox and Vid Simoniti.
