Collide Residency Award 2020 was launched on the 27 of October and has already had a thrilling response from artists that look with interest towards science. The call for entries is now open and will continue receiving submissions until the deadline on the 7 of December.
We are well aware that it is not always easy to know the scope of scientific research and to imagine how an artist can engage with science and particularly with physics. For this reason we have organised a ‘Collide Info day’ to encourage participation, to learn about CERN in Geneva, and research centres in Barcelona, to clarify doubts about the call, the terms and conditions of the residency, and how to imagine significant dialogues between artists and scientists.
Collide 2020 is made thanks to the cooperation with the city of Barcelona, and hosted by Hangar, creating a unique opportunity for exploring both CERN and Barcelona. The Info Day will also explain details of how the residency works between both centres.
During the Collide Info Day you will have the opportunity to listen to Julia Miralles, Science and University Advisor of the Barcelona City Council together with Mónica Bello, Curator and Head of Arts at CERN and Lluis Nacenta, Director of Hangar introducing Collide and the framework of collaboration between CERN and Barcelona. Helga Timko, particle physicist working in the operation of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and Xavier Luri, director of The Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona will explain the fundamental research conducted in laboratories in Geneva and Barcelona. Dutch artist winner of Collide International 2019, Rosa Menkman will share her experience during the residencies and how these experiences have shaped her artistic practice.
