COLLIDE International Award welcomes proposals from artists from any country who are inspired by the ground-breaking research environment at CERN. From all the applications received, one artist will be selected to receive a prize of CHF 15,000 and a two-month residency at the lab during 2017. Moreover, the prize comprises a following one-month residency at FACT, Liverpool to further develop the awarded proposal and to move into a funded production.
COLLIDE is a unique opportunity for artists to spend dedicated time in one of the most important laboratories in the world, where crucial questions about nature are addressed. Ultimately, COLLIDE proposes to transform the way art and science encounters are understood, to encourage a deep and critical understanding of art and science collaborations, and to challenge new modes of dialogue and enquiry across disciplines.
Deadline: Friday 10 March 2017.
