Fleet Science Center

Arts and Museums

The San Diego Museum of Art presents Tim Shaw: Beyond Reason, an exhibition creating psychologically charged environments that address humanitarian issues in several immersive installations. On view Oct. 20, 2018–Feb. 24, 2019, the exhibition touches on several major themes, including global terrorism, freedom of speech, abuse of power and the future of artificial intelligence. Tim Shaw, a celebrated Northern Irish sculptor, is known for his large-scale multi-sensory installations that create dialogue around controversial topics. The six installations featured in this exhibition are based on extraordinary personal experiences throughout the artist’s life, but the topics are universal and timeless. Tim Shaw: Beyond Reason is the first time the artist’s work has been on view in the U.S.

The Museum of Man offers a new guided tour and behind-the-scenes experience via the Balboa Park mobile app that allows visitors to explore hidden places in the museum. The mobile tour became available in April 2018 and includes photos, videos, audio interviews, and an augmented reality experience. The app features written content in over 100 languages and is available for iOS and Android downloadable here.
