Liverpool LASER Talks


Event passed

Tickets no longer available.

Part of the Winter 2018 season

Join us for the opening of a new international exhibition premiering at FACT, with a series of talks from artists, scientists and curators who are pushing the boundaries of artist research and deepening engagement with science.

This unprecedented collaboration between artists and scientists brings a close to the three year partnership with Arts at Cern and FACT with opening talks presented in partnership with LJMU and Liverpool LASER. LASER (Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendevouz) talks are Leonardo's international programme of evening gatherings that bring artists and scientists together for informal presentations and conversations on art and science.

The Liverpool LASER talks will be introduced by Professor Caroline Wilkinson, Director of the School of Art and Design (LJMU) and Liverpool LASER co-host. Each talk will culminate with a Q&A led by Mark Roughley, Programme Leader MA Art in Science (LJMU) and Liverpool LASER co-host.

16:00 - 17:00 - Introduction and The Collide Award Talk

What is the Collide International Residency Award and how do artists and scientists meet in the abstract field?

Chaired by Mónica Bello, Curator & Head of Arts at CERN and curator of Broken Symmetries.

17:00 - 17:45 - Art & Science Talk

Dive deeper into the artistic and scientific concepts behind Broken Symmetries and question how we can create a space and language through art to enable scientific conversations.

Chaired by Mark Wright, Director of FACTLab (FACT / LJMU).

17:45 - 18:45 - Broken Symmetries Talk

How does abstraction help us to understand the universe, and how can we form new languages where standard forms fail? Can the collision of art and science help us to describe the invisible?

Chaired by Jose-Carlos Mariategui, Curator of Broken Symmetries.

Broken Symmetries is co-produced by ScANNER (the Science and Art Network for New Exhibitions and Research), composed of Arts at CERN (the arts program of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, Geneva); FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, Liverpool); CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona); iMAL (interactive Media Arts Laboratory, Brussels); and le lieu unique (Center for Contemporary Culture – Nantes).

Broken Symmetries Liverpool LASER talks are presented in partnership with LJMU and Leonardo LASER talks.
