2015-cern-artTalk

Matter: The Fundamental Particles
Presented in partnership with Art at CMS and CERN

ARTIST TALK Wednesday, May 20 | 7pm
On view through May 31, 2015

Miami-based artist and ArtCenter alumnus Xavier Cortada and Pete Markowitz, professor of physics at Florida International University in conversation about their collaboration at Art@CMS. The talk will be moderated by Dr. Jorge Pérez Gallego, Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science.

For this CMS exhibition, works were selected from artist/scientist collaborations as well as video artists who were invited to create pieces inspired by the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment. The CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, at CERN, the European Laboratory for Particle Physics that sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. CERN is one of the world’s largest and most respected centers for scientific research. It operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world where physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter—the fundamental particles—that provide insights into the fundamental laws of nature. CMS is designed to measure the properties of previously discovered particles with unprecedented precision, and be on the lookout for completely new, unpredicted phenomena.
