EXPERIMENTA, the Arts and Sciences Biennial

Atelier Arts-Sciences runs the EXPERIMENTA fair every two years. Open to the general public, the event is a fusion of the arts, sciences, and technology. EXPERIMENTA, LE SALON extends the experience with around 30 installations, performances, workshops, readings, and theatrical escapades designed to immerse visitors in the imaginations of the artists and scientists who collaborated to create the different works. The growing range of technologies explored spans energy, optics, artificial intelligence, IoT, and more.

EXPERIMENTA, LE SALON also highlights the latest research from across Europe. The most recent edition of the event included ten installations created as part of two EU R&D projects (European ARTificial Intelligence Lab financed by Creative Europe and PRESTIGE, backed by Horizon 2020 under Grant Agreement 761112).

This one-of-a-kind exhibit is rounded out by panel talks addressing today’s technological and societal issues. The event was created in 2010 and is open to the general public and to professionals.  The most recent edition of EXPERIMENTA, LE SALON was held at MINATEC in February 2020, and attracted more than 7,000 visitors. The broader Biennale Arts-Sciences brought in 14,000 people. This groundbreaking work at the crossroads of the arts and the sciences fuels new forms of innovation. The uniquely futuristic outlook expressed in the works produced appeals to a rapidly-growing audience.

The 2020 edition was particularly memorable, with immersive installations visitors could interact with through virtual reality, walk through and explore, and touch and manipulate.
