In the quantum realm, what is observable and what is unseeable? When art and science mingle, can we create structures based on rules, or unknown weirdness?

Immerse yourself in the experience of quantum physics through dance, spoken word, projection sculpture, and virtual reality. Participate in hands-on activities that explore the rules and the beauty in quantum materials. Join us as we dive deep to expand our understanding of nano-scale physics, and the implications of potential future breakthroughs.

Doors/Bar/Art & Science Activities 6 pm | Live Show 7:30 pm | Entry with museum admission ($10; free for UBC students & staff, Indigenous peoples, children under 6, and MOA Members)| Family Friendly

This Night Shift event is hosted by UBC Museum of Anthropology and curated by Curiosity Collider Art-Science Foundation, with collaborations from UBC Department of Physics & Astronomy and Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute.



This event is curated by Curiosity Collider Creative Managing Director Char Hoyt.

The artwork gathered together for this event is a delightful blending of some of the most famous theories in Quantum Mechanics with both traditional and new artistic practices. When science is filtered through a creative expression it can both inspire and reveal new ways of seeing and understanding the concepts within. Our performers have crafted thoughtful experiences through dance, spoken word, sound, and light, that express the weirdness of the quantum realm and how it is reflected in our daily lives. We have also worked closely with scientists to develop hands-on activities that embody the same principles to create experiences that engage your creativity in understanding the quantum world. We encourage you to interact with the artists and scientists and let their work guide you through the quantum realm.
