ArtSci: What, Why, Where?
ArtSci (“artsy”) started in 2018 as an idea that science should be accessible to all. At a time when our knowledge of the universe ranges from Higgs bosons to collisions of black holes, it is important to find creative ways to communicate the magic of new discoveries.
In pursuit of this, ArtSci celebrates the intersection of art and science through a two week exhibition held at ETH Zurich every spring. This festival is open to everyone — all that is needed is a piece (visual, auditory, multimedia, etc) that expresses science in an artistic way. It’s really up to the scientists, artists, and the audience, to explore these boundaries and we at ArtSci are excited to see what can be achieved in this chiasma of Art+Science.
The first ArtSci exhibition: La Rencontre took place from 22nd April to 6th May 2018.
The second ArtSci exhibition: Hémisphères will be held from 29th April to 10th May 2019.
ArtSci is also a great opportunity to discover work from other disciplines and network with participants from different universities and regions of the world.
