Broken Symmetries brings together artists who aim to understand and question the physical world by navigating the shifting realities of modern science.

This inquiry into existence has long served as an inspiration to many artists. Through scientific and artistic collaborations, this exhibition brings together ten new commissions by international artists who creatively explore questions and connections that may contribute to the understanding of the hidden world, and the impact it has on our lives.

Explore the artworks in Gallery 1 by artists Yunchul Kim, Juan Cortés, Semiconductor, James Bridle, Yu-Chen Wang and Lea Porsager.

Broken Symmetries began with Collide International, the flagship programme created in collaboration between Arts at CERN and FACT. Between 2015-2018, a group of artists were invited to CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear Research, Geneva) to advance their artistic practice by establishing a dialogue with engineers and particle physicists.

Since premiering at FACT in Liverpool in 2018, the exhibition has toured to CCCB (Barcelona, Spain), iMAL (Brussels, Belgium), National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (Taiwan), Le Lieu Unique (Nantes, Frances) and Kumu (Tallinn, Estonia).

Continue your exploration in Gallery 2 with artworks by Diann Bauer, hrm199 (Haroon Mirza and Jack Jelfs) and Suzanne Treister.
