Celebrations began with Unveiling the Universe, an event combining science, art and culture in CERN Science Gateway on 30 January.

As part of the celebrations for CERN’s 70th anniversary, the Unveiling the Universe event was a unique meeting of art and science, looking back at CERN’s 70 years of scientific discoveries and looking ahead to the mysteries of the Universe still to be understood.

The day began with the inaugural CERN Art and Science Summit. Artists and physicists delved into the challenges and opportunities of engagement across disciplines in three moderated conversations.

Participants were then invited to visit Exploring the Unknown, the inaugural art exhibition at CERN Science Gateway.  

In the evening, renowned scientists, including Nobel Laureate David Gross, engaged in discussions about 70 Years of Discoveries at CERN, a fascinating journey through the evolution of particle physics. 

The event concluded with Enigma, a collaborative work by composer Anna Þorvaldsdóttir and artist Sigurður Guðjónsson, which was performed live by the Ensemble Phoenix Basel string quartet.
