CNIO Artistic Residences is an initiative born from the same fundamental principle as CNIO Arte: both science and art are essential to understand and interpret the world, and both can inspire each other. With the aim of fostering artistic and scientific talent and promoting interdisciplinary cooperation, CNIO Artististic Residences is opening a call for the election of a young or mid-career artist for a 6-month stay at the CNIO. The selected artist will have the opportunity to know the centre, its facilities and research lines, and be in contact with its research staff with the aim of finding points of convergence, common interests and new avenues of inspiration. This common work will end in the creation of one or more works by the artist. These creations will be exhibited at the CNIO,and at all events and/or institutions collaborating in the dissemination of the project. The artworks may be offered for sale and, if sold, the profits obtained will be used entirely to fund CNIO research.
