ico-D is pleased to endorse The 5th Arts and Science International Exhibition and Symposium (TASIES 2019) from Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University to be held in Beijing at the National Museum of China and Tsinghua University organised by ico-D Member Academy of Arts and Design, Tsinghua University.

The Tsinghua University’s Art and Science International Exhibition and Symposium was co-founded by Nobel-Prize-winning physicist Prof. Tsung-Dao Lee and esteemed artist Prof. Wu Guanzhong. The event aims to reveal the inner relation between art and science through demonstration as well as academic discussion of frontier exploration, domestic and international, in art and science. It’s also founded in the hope of expanding and deepening artistic and scientific studies, improving innovation level, as well as facilitating harmonious development in both fields. So far, four successful sessions of the event have been held respectively in 2001, 2006, 2012, and 2016.

The 5th Art and Science International Exhibition and Symposium (TASIES 2019) theme is AS-Helix: The Integration of Art and Science in the Age of Artificial Intelligence. The AS-Helix exhibition and symposium encourage dialogues and reflections in relevant fields such as human cognition, production revolution, future education, art paradigm, design innovation, health and medical care, and sustainable development. It also explores how art and science can be deeply integrated in the age of AI, and how we can promote sustainable development based on the concept of consultation, contribution and shared benefits.
