Entangle / Physics and the Artistic Imagination is produced by Bildmuseet, Umeå University. The exhibition is accompanied by an audio cloud where artists reflect on Light, Gravity, Matter, Time, and Space side by side with physicists from CERN and Harvard University on the same phenomena.


A catalogue accompanying the exhibition will be published in the spring of 2019 (Hatje Cantz), featuring essays by the physicist and best-selling author Carlo Rovelli; science journalist Philip Ball; Nicola Triscott, artistic director at Arts Catalyst; the art historian Gavin Parkinson; and Ariane Koek, curator of the exhibition.
