The Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program of EPFL’s College of Humanities is pleased to announce Rosa Menkman (the Netherlands), Sarah Oppenheimer (USA), and Gary Zhexi Zhang (China/UK) as the three artists selected for the 2023 call of Enter the Hyper-Scientific.
The CDH AiR program “Enter the Hyper-Scientific” was launched in its first international edition in Fall 2021, with the goal of fostering transdisciplinary encounters between artists and EPFL’s scientific community. The program offers three-month residencies where artists work in collaboration with different laboratories on the EPFL campus, developing interdisciplinary projects and conducting research to create innovative works, which are then presented in public exhibitions at EPFL Pavilions.
By bringing together artists and scientists, the program aims to establish a dynamic, critical, and inspiring platform for propelling aesthetic investigations at the intersection of art, technology, science, and the humanities.
This year, three outstanding proposals were chosen out of roughly 150 applications from around the world:
- Im/Possible Rainbows and Unnamed Colours by Rosa Menkman
- Circulatory Pathways by Sarah Oppenheimer
- The Inadequacy of Gammar by Gary Zhexi Zhang
ENTER THE HYPER-SCIENTIFIC – Residents 2023:
These projects will be developed in close collaboration with EPFL labs and scientists.
