About the Portal
The art+science portal represents a virtual platform for the art+science program, which connects and unites the contemporary art scene with scientists and scientific institutions in our country, as well as on an international scale.
The Center for the Promotion of Science, emphasizes relevant scientific and social topics through the art+science program, interpreting them through interdisciplinary collaborations based on the use of contemporary artistic practices and new technologies.
Our goal is to provide individuals, organizations, and institutions – artists and scientists – operating at the intersection of art and science, with a space for collective reflection and creation.
Additionally, we share current news, calls for collaborations between artists and scientists, and all other information relevant to this field.
