We provide a stage for artists and audiences engaged in innovation. We initiate collaborations between artists, scientists, and technologists, as well as present existing works from around the globe. This interdisciplinary approach to understanding our world has the important impact of more adequately assessing the ground-level effects of scientific innovations. Artists and humanists have the opportunity to constructively and creatively influence those who aim to change the face and the fate of humanity.
At MAX, we place art and innovation at the center of everything we do. Our core values of: Curiosity, Creativity, Discovery, and Practicality represent our dedication to fulfilling our mission. We value interactivity above all else and each of our presentations will have a live component of the presentation and a live audience. At times it might be a 1 to 1 ratio but we will always be there with you live!
Help support artistic exploration and humanistic inquiry into the light speed advances in science and technology.
