International Academic Forum on Art and Science



1. Background

The unity of truth, goodness and beauty is the eternal pursuit of mankind. In order to seek truth,  science generates , in order to seek beauty, the art generates. Art and science are like the wings of a bird and the two wheels of a car, which together promote social progress and ceaseless human civilization. In this process, art and science have always been mutually beneficial and integrated, they have different ways, but both stop at the truth and the goodness. Both Chinese and foreign scholars in the ancient times have had an insight into the relationship between the two. Aristotle said that art is the intellectual means for human beings to grasp the natural world, while Zhang yanyuan believed that painting can make changes and measure the subtle. With the rapid development of informatization and intelligence today, science is pursuing greater breakthroughs, and art is also facing faster transformation. The boundary and thinking paradigm between art and science will be further broken through, and the trend of mutual integration is more obvious. Science has already given us an unprecedented new understanding of the nature of artistic activities; the unique aesthetic experience of art can stimulate the imagination and creativity of scientists, to shape our technological path, and promote the further common development of science and art.

As the first academy of fine arts in the world, Florence academy of fine arts in Italy has always adhered to the educational concept of the integration of art and science, it enjoys the reputation of the mother of art schools and the first of the four art academies in the world. Nanjing university of aeronautics and astronautics, as an internationally renowned institution of higher education , which has distinctive characteristics of science and engineering , is also committed to exploring the combination and integration of art and science.
