An UB and Arts Santa Mònica project appears in Nature

Nature has written an article related to a project that is being done by Arts Santa Mònica jointly with Josep Perelló, professor of the University of Barcelona (UB), «Think Art – Act Science», which emphasizes the collaboration between Art and Science, how the works between a scientist's and an artist can converge. In 2009 the University of Barcelona (UB), through the Bosch i Gimpera Foundation (FBG) –located at the Barcelona Science Park-, signed an agreement with the Arts Santa Mònica centre to collaborate in art, science and communication projects.

Think Art, Act Science is an exhibition of projects by artists who have engaged in dialogue with scientists from a variety of disciplines. All of the artists taking part in the Swiss artists-in-labs programme have done a nine-month residency in a scientific research institute or a university science department.

The exhibition project in Barcelona adds in a local component, with educational activities, discussion and research using methodologies that foster multidisciplinary creativity. The exhibition at Arts Santa Mònica marks the start of a tour that will take the project to other cities in Europe, America and Asia.
