A travelling art exhibition entitled ‘Quantum/Broken Symmetries’* will bring the fruit of CERN’s art and science residencies to four new museums worldwide in 2020: iMAL in Brussels, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts in Taichung, Le lieu unique in Nantes and Kumu Art Museum in Tallinn.
‘Broken Symmetries/ Quantum’ gathers the outcome of these exchanges under the curation of Mónica Bello, curator and head of Arts at CERN, and Peruvian researcher and curator José Carlos Mariátegui. Adapted to several different museums, the travelling exhibition explores the influence of physics in culture and creativity across disciplines. In 2018 and 2019, it travelled to Liverpool and Barcelona. In 2020 the exhibition will open in Brussels on 5 March and travel to Taichung, Taiwan on 14 March. Later, in the summer, on 25 June, ‘Broken Symmetries/Quantum’ will be shown in Nantes, France, before travelling again on 30 October to Tallinn, Estonia.
Please note that these dates might suffer changes due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
The exhibition is co-produced by ScANNER (the Science and Art Network for New Exhibitions and Research), a consortium created by CERN, Geneva; FACT, Liverpool; CCCB, Barcelona; iMAL, Brussels and Le Lieu Unique, Nantes.
*Please note that the exhibition title varies for each city: ‘Broken Symmetries’ for Liverpool and Tallinn, ‘Quàntica’ for Barcelona, ‘Quantum: in search of the invisible’ for Brussels and Nantes and ‘Broken Symmetries, Art x Physics’ for Taichung.
