The COLLIDE International Award 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.
Famously home to the Large Hadron Collider, CERN has offered the award to artists with an interest in the sciences for several years. This is the first year, however, it will be collaborating with the Liverpool-based Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT).
The winner of the COLLIDE International Award will win a three-month-long, fully funded residency split between the two institutions as well as a 15,000 Swiss Francs cash prize
The competition is open to artists of any nationality or age. Their proposal should reflect upon encounters between art and science, and offer challenging methods of collaboration with CERN scientists.
The deadline for applications is May 23rd, 2016.
