Call for Submissions – Collisions Festival Sci-Art Exhibition


In the fall of 2019, Curiosity Collider will host our inaugural Sci-Art Exhibition, the Collisions Festival. This year’s theme will be Invasive Systems. This three-day interactive festival that will explore the influences of ecology, technology, infrastructure, and more on our inner and outer lives. We will delve into how we can understand our observations from both scientific and artistic perspectives—are these influences desirable, inevitable, or preventable?

Artists submitting to this exhibition are open to interpret and express the “Invasive” theme in whichever way inspires them, and examine the effects on our ecosystems, our societies, and our bodies. Artists may submit artwork that reflects or expresses a connection to any scientific discipline of their choice. This can range from physics to ecology to social sciences, but a clear connection with scientific process or data is imperative. Artwork that goes beyond being inspired by science and includes an expression of data or a ‘deep dive’ into scientific concepts will be favoured.

There are opportunities for artists to submit individual artwork (existing or new), or propose collaborative artwork with a scientist that is facilitated by Curiosity Collider. We pay artists CARFAC rate. Submission deadline is May 15th, 2019.
