Space Week: Art and the Universe Symposium

This event is over.

Date:Friday October 6 2023

Time:10:00 am - 12:oo pm

Location:CCAD Sharman Crawford St. Downstairs Lecture Theatre, Cork

As part of ‘Space Week’ this half day symposium at the MTU Crawford College of Art and Design brings together two artists whose
work explores the intersections between art, science and the Universe. Interdisciplinary artists Nicklas Lundberg and Kamil Hassim
will present their practices as well as recent residencies at both CERN, Geneva and the National Space Centre in Cork. Both artists
work at the point of convergence between many seemingly opposing fields in what could be called a ‘creative convergence’
of disciplines. Ways in which we interface with the known and unknown universe and deep space through astronomical observatories
and related technologies lies at the heart of what they do in their practices.
This ongoing collaboration is open to the public and has been supported by MTU CCAD and Blackrock Castle Observatory.
