From March 5th until August 16th, 2020, we presented QUANTUM: IN SEARCH OF THE INVISIBLE, exploring the world of quantum physics, through works created by artists resulting from their encounters with researchers at CERN, Geneva.
Being presented at FACT (Liverpool), CCCB (Barcelona), iMAL (Brussels), National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (Taiwan) and from today: Eesti Kunstimuuseum (Tallinn), the exhibition has taken on many forms.
Thanks to FACT, Liverpool you can now explore the exhibition online. Step into the galleries at FACT and experience a virtual tour of the exhibition during its premiere in November 2018.
More information about the exhibition
This collective exhibition presents ten commissioned artworks by internationally renowned artists, which rethink scientific research and facts to explore states of being and the very possibilities of reality. These works question how much we really know about the world around us, and how we may begin to discover new aspects by taking a different perspective. Vividly inspired by the minds of the scientists they met, each artist created their own piece, which reinterprets contemporary science in its own way.
In recent years, CERN in Geneva—the world’s largest laboratory of fundamental scientific research—has fostered new models of collaboration between arts and science. Within its Arts at CERN programme, artists are invited to spend time working alongside particle physicists and engineers. During these encounters, creative collisions occur, enriching and diversifying scientific thinking, whilst simultaneously providing endless resources for artistic practice. This exhibition brings together a selection of the works developed during the last three years of this programme.
This exhibition was curated by Mónica Bello (Arts at CERN) and José-Carlos Mariátegui.
