The exhibition “Quantica: In Search of the Invisible” gives us the keys to understanding the principles of fundamental physics, and it does so through the joint creative work of scientists, educators and artists. The project invites the public to browse freely, to awaken their curiosity, and to critically evaluate the new paradigms of modern science.

“Quantica” is a project curated by Mónica Bello and José Carlos Mariátegui, with the physicist José Ignacio Latorre as scientific advisor.

The exhibition was co-produced by ScANNER (the Science and Art Network for New Exhibitions and Research), composed of CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research, Geneva); FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology, Liverpool); CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona); IMAL (interactive Media Arts Laboratory, Brussels); and Le Lieu Unique, Nantes. ScANNER was initiated through the Collide lnternational residency Award 2016-2018, a partnership programme between CERN and FACT.
