PROGRAMMING

The Artistic mission and the scientific mission share the need for a catalyzing vision, a space to experiment, and a public to process the work.  MAX provides a platform for the artistic mission to consider and influence the scientific mission and a portal for the public to consume and consider the artist’s vision.   

MAX will host a performing and media arts festival annually. MAX produces  events leading up to the festival to provide artists and their scientific partners  time to experiment with the work.
