Enjoy the Exploratorium’s arts programs, which, like our scientific programs, offer a way to understand our world.
Explore distant realms of musical possibility with Resonance, an evening series at the Exploratorium. Contemporary musicians and sound artists perform new works and discuss their ideas, techniques, and inspirations with radio host and pianist Sarah Cahill. All events are held in our sonically state-of-the-art Kanbar Forum.
Fog Bridge #72494, an outdoor artwork by Fujiko Nakaya, pumps water, at high pressure, through more than 800 nozzles, shrouding visitors in fog and putting their perceptions at the center of the experience.
The haunting effects of a Technicolor printing error take center stage in this performance and talk by John Klacsmann and Walter Forsberg. In Technicolor N.G., a misprinted Western reveals cyan ghosts and cinema’s psychedelic underpinnings.
This program focuses on two nearly forgotten films from the collection of the New York–based Film-Makers’ Cooperative. Created by youths raised by artists, their works demonstrate levels of skill and complexity that belie their ages.
In breaking down motion and considering the inner workings of our physical forms, this program examines the central element of each moment. Bodies become invitations to exploration in these inside, up-close, slowed-down, and inventive looks at our corporeal selves.
