At Arts at CERN we pioneer new ways of bringing together artists and scientists, lead the conversation about art and science, and support artistic innovation and openness to research environments.
- Monica Bello, Curator and Head of Arts at CERN.


Arts at CERN is the leading art and science programme fostering the dialogue between artists and physicists.

It consists of several strands, with a goal of providing artists from different disciplines the time and the access to scientific expertise and the community of the laboratory.

  • Art Commissions & Exhibitions, A new program that supports new artworks and exhibitions resulting from our artistic residencies
  • Collide, a residency award of up to three months to invite artists to further their artistic practice in connection with fundamental research at CERN.
  • Accelerate, a country-specific award for artists from different geographies to access the residencies program at CERN.
  • Guest Artists visits, short exploratory visits for artists from all over the world to connect with the world of CERN.

If you also believe in the combined creative power of art and science to explore and make sense in the universe, please help us keep the dialogue going.
