This two-day conference presents cross-disciplinary collaborations from the fields of visual art, science, architecture and performing arts. How are these collaborations manifested within the arts, and how do they add to the steadily expanding vocabulary of expressions? By exploring the hybrid spaces created through collaborations, Fluid Encounters Between Art and Science aims to examine the creative potential and unexpected knowledge generated through cross-disciplinary initiatives.

Among the participants:
Ariane Koek (Collide@CERN Artists’ Residency Program, Geneva)
Gediminas Urbonas (MIT Program in Art, Culture, and Technology, Boston)
Ele Carpenter (Goldsmiths, University of London)
Rob La Frenais (Arts Catalyst, London)
Per Nilsson (Umeå Academy of Fine Arts, Umeå University)
Björn Säfsten (choreographer and dancer, Stockholm)
Barbro Schultz (journalist and documentary filmmaker, Paris) 
Sara Arrhenius (Bonniers konsthall, Stockholm)

Register here.  

With a focus on process, the conference presents projects ranging from the 1960s to the present. The technologically evolving context of our time, when knowledge and experiences can be simultaneously shared across the globe to create new realities, faces us with such questions as: How can artists collaboratively interrogate this new reality? What happens when artistic practices meet other disciplines?What new questions are posed? 

We welcome your participation in the conference where you will be able to meet artists, scientists, curators and other practitioners who have developed a critical investigative approach through collaborations across disciplinary boundaries. 

Fluid Encounters Between Art and Science is organised by Bildmuseet and Riksutställningar/Swedish Exhibition Agency in collaboration with Humlab-X and Umeå Academy of Fine Arts, Umeå University.
