Arts@CERN. Art and Science interactions
Arts@CERN pioneers new ways of bringing together artists and scientists, to lead the conversation about art and science, and support artistic innovation and openness to research environments.
The arts program of the world’s largest laboratory of particle physics was founded in 2011 to explore notions of creativity, human ingenuity and curiosity. Today, artists from all over the world are invited, through its programmes, to spend time at CERN and work alongside particle physicists and engineers.
By positioning artists and scientists together within the larger scientific context, CERN’s programmes foster new approaches to research, experimentation and artistic production. The objective is to question how art and culture can form novel visions of a highly specialised environment and what common grounds can be shared between art and science.
