Arts at CERN launches a new call for Collide, its flagship residency programme, in partnership with the City of Barcelona. Artists from all around the world are invited to submit their proposals for a research-led residency. The laureate, an individual artist or artistic collective, will be invited to spend three months dedicated to artistic research and exploration between CERN and Barcelona.

Collide calls for artists inspired by the processes of fundamental science and interested in interacting with the scientific communities at CERN and Barcelona. We invite proposals that focus on the artist’s current practice and are open to working with physicists, engineers, IT experts and laboratory staff.

The selected artist or artistic collective will receive a three-month fully funded residency award that will allow them to spend two months at CERN in Geneva, followed by one month in Barcelona (not necessarily consecutively), hosted at Hangar Centre for Art Research and Production in Barcelona and in connection with the city's scientific laboratories. The scope of the artist's proposal should include a research period to be developed at CERN and a second developmental phase in Barcelona, where the artists will have the opportunity to expand their research through Barcelona’s rich scientific and cultural network, as well as to engage with a wide range of communities.

The award includes the following support and conditions:

− 15 000 Swiss Francs as a research and artistic production award.

− Personal allowance for two months at CERN in Geneva and one month in Barcelona.

− Travel and accommodation costs within a fixed budget for the three months of the artistic residency at CERN and in Barcelona.

The recipient of the residency award will be expected to:
− Engage in research based on the proposal submitted to the Collide Call for Entries.
− Meet regularly with the CERN scientific partner(s) to discuss the process of artistic research, exploration and discovery, and additionally work with other scientists.

− Give one talk in both locations during the residency.

Eligibility:

We are happy to invite artists to participate in OPEN CALL of the 6th edition of the artist residency IN//BETWEEN. 

In//Between is not just an exhibition. It is a collaborative project that brings together artists from different cultures and parts of the world. In//Between is about creating a space that does not belong to any one artist, culture, language, art form, or discipline. For four weeks, the six artists selected examine the ways they have previously seen and done things and look to what lies ahead: an open canvas, a blank role of film, a block of clay, an idea or vision that has not been thought of before. Throughout this residency, the artists collaborate to build a unique exhibition that showcases the nexus between cross-cultural dialogue, experience, and growth. They will create a space where diversity leads the way. Accepted artists must commit to attend all planning, preparing, gathering, and discussion evenings. The work for this exhibition must be created between the initial group meeting and the opening of the exhibition. Previously created works will not be accepted. 

Green Hill Gallery (Berlin, Germany) will be available as a studio space for all In//Between artists from October 11 through November 5, 2021. The vernissage will occur on November 5, 2021.
