The Betancourt building hosts the exhibition ‘Nanoasalto Evolution’, which brings us closer to nanoscience through art

The Aragon Nanoscience and Materials of Aragon Institute, INMA, a joint institute of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the University of Zaragoza (Unizar), in its work of dissemination and promotion of scientific culture in the field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, together with Asalto Producciones in the artistic direction and Esciencia Eventos Científicos in the Scientific Consultancy, presents the dissemination project ‘NanoAsalto Evolution’, an exploration of nanoscience through art.

This initiative called NanoAsalto Evolution is directed by the researcher Lucía Gutiérrez Marruedo, CSIC researcher at INMA and is a small window open to the exploration of the relationship and potential that exists between science and art, involving both artists and researchers at INMA who have been working together for the last few months to present this different way of approaching nanoscience and a new way of finding meeting points for research with the general public.

The exhibition can be visited from 16 to 24 May in the Betancourt Building of the Río Ebro Campus of the University of Zaragoza. The exhibition brings together the work resulting from the collaboration between four artists from different branches of art who have captured the work of four other researchers in the field of nanoscience. Nanoscience research areas such as nanofabrication of materials for neuromorphic devices, ceramics for a sustainable energy future, superconducting radiation sensors and antimicrobial materials based on self-assembled systems, fields of study of Irene Lucas, Rafael Martín and Alodia Orera, Unizar researchers at INMA and Carlos Pobes, CSIC researcher at INMA, have materialised thanks to the artistic expression of plastic and visual artists such as Prado Vielsa, Silvia Cored, Natalia Escudero and Alejandro Azón Ballarín.

In addition, the ‘NanoAsalto Evolution’ project is a continuation of the exploration of new forms of scientific dissemination that began in the first edition of ‘NanoAsalto’ in 2020 and whose result was the creation of five artistic pieces that join those created in this edition of ‘NanoAsalto Evolution’, enriching the project and offering new points of view of nanoscience.


Itinerancy of the project

Subsequently, the project will travel to different scientific and cultural spaces such as the Faculty of Education at the University of Zaragoza (from 28 May to 18 June) and will end up at CaixaForum Zaragoza on 21 June, where it will be exhibited in the hall of the Auditorium on the occasion of the celebration of the 5th Nanotechnology Gala of Aragon.
