Artist Jol Thoms documents researchers working on CUTE (a Cryogenic Underground Test Facility) at SNOLAB.
Drift: Art and Dark Matter is an artist residency and exhibition project developed with the Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute and SNOLAB. Artists Nadia Lichtig, Josèfa Ntjam, Anne Riley and Jol Thoms have been invited to make new work while engaging with scientists, theorists and engineers contributing to the search for dark matter at the McDonald Institute and at SNOLAB’s underground facility in Sudbury, located two kilometers below the Earth’s surface.
The goal of the residency is the opening of new avenues of exchange and hybridity that can offer new comprehensions of the thrilling advanced science being done across Canada today. The exhibition Drift: Art and Dark Matter will run at the Agnes from 9 January–11 April 2021 before going on a national tour.
