EU Climate Diplomacy Day | Naming of Antarctic Ice Paintings: Global Coastlines

Xavier Cortada will participate in EU Climate Diplomacy Day.

On September 27, 2018, at the Storer Auditorium in the Miami Business School, the artist will engage the audience in his DO NOT OPEN performance, asking them to write letters to the future.  The artist will also invite five General Consuls to randomly select one of the 60 paintings the artist made by melting Antarctic ice  and name it after one of their own country’s coastal cities made vulnerable by the melting of that same Antarctic ice.  The five European consuls will be the first to randomly name the Global Coastlines series of the Antarctic Ice Paintings.  The remaining 55 works will be named at a ceremony in Pinecrest Gardens Hibiscus Gallery on November 29, 2018, see

About art@CMS
The art@CMS programme promotes the dialogue between science and the arts by bringing scientists and artists into direct contact. From the resulting dialogue, the artist creates a unique interpretation of the world of particle physics using the eyes of the CMS detector.

Installed at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the CMS experiment records and analyses the collisions of billions of protons. Each collision is reconstructed for viewing by the scientist.
Through art exhibitions and educational workshops, the two complementary views merge, stimulating our senses and inspiring our curiosity by highlighting the mystery.
