CAC /en/museu-de-les-ciencies/exposiciones/esculturas-tony-cragg.html The Tony Cragg sculpture exhibition is coming to the outside spaces of the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències thanks to the Hortensia Herrero Foundation. Six sculptures, three of which have been done especially for this exhibition, can be seen until November 4, 2018 throughout the different spaces within the complex. 

Four of the sculptures are located on the water in the various ponds belonging to the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, and this is something novel as this artist has never before exhibited his work atop a sheet of water. The sculptures are made in various materials such as bronze, steel, and fiberglass. In terms of their size, some of them exceed six meters in height and 4,000 kilograms in weight. 

Tony Cragg, who will simultaneously have an exhibition in the streets of New York alongside his Valencia exhibition, is considered to be the leading figure in British sculpture's resurgence during the 1980s and one of the most iconic artists of his time, having earned all sorts of international awards. His work is characterized by a varied use of materials such as stone, wood, aluminum, bronze, steel, and plastic – turning all of those materials into sculptural shapes. 

At the end of the exhibition, the Hortensia Herrero Foundation will purchase one of the sculptures and it will be placed at an emblematic location in the city of Valencia, just as was done with the exhibition dedicated to Manolo Valdés last year.

]]>
CAC /en/hemisferic/proyecciones/ritmos-america-pelicula-hemisferic.html Year: 2018
Director: Greg MacGillivray
Length: 40 Minutes
Rating: Rated 'G' for General Audiences
Language: narration through headphones with possibility of choosing language. Spanish, Valencian, English and French. Original version narrated by Morgan Freeman

“America’s Musical Journey” follows singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc as he traces the roots of American music and explores the great musical cities, places like New Orleans, Chicago, Nashville, Miami, New York City and more, where such electrifying art forms as jazz, the blues, country, soul and rock and roll were born.

In America’s musical cities, every chord, every riff, every bang of a drum tells a story. In “America’s Musical Journey” these stories come together to create a soundtrack for the American experience, a soundtrack that showcases the nation’s diversity and its collision of cultures, culminating in a unique blend of sound, music and innovation unlike anywhere else in the world.

Conference: Gravitational waves: from Einstein to a new science. Nobel prize in Physics Barry Barish. /en/museu-de-les-ciencies/Ciclos-y-conferencias/Actualidad/conferencia-Barry-Barish-premio-nobel-fisica.html Mon, 04 Jun 2018 13:53:00 +0200 Conference: Gravitational waves: from Einstein to a new science. Nobel prize in Physics 2017 Barry Barish. Free access, will be held on Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018 at the Santiago Grisolía Auditorium of the Museu de les Ciències from 7:00 p.m.

CAC /en/museu-de-les-ciencies/Ciclos-y-conferencias/Actualidad/conferencia-Barry-Barish-premio-nobel-fisica.html Albert Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves a hundred years ago, but its effects are so small that Einstein himself doubted that one day they could be detected. It took the community of theoretical physicists forty years of controversy to come to the conviction that these waves were indeed real. At that point the problem passed to the community of experimental physicists: would they be able to develop instruments that are sufficiently precise to detect them? The Observatory of Gravitational Waves through Laser Interferometry (LIGO, for its acronym in English), using techniques of exquisite sensitivity, has managed to repeatedly observe the gravitational waves emitted by the merger of two black holes, and more recently He has also observed the collision of two neutron stars. These observations have opened a totally new window to the universe: the astronomy of gravitational waves.

Free access prior registration.

Mars: The Conquest of a Dream /en/museu-de-les-ciencies/exposiciones/exposicion-marte.html Wed, 09 May 2018 12:21:00 +0200 First Floor. - Experience and discover the most relevant facts and curiosities about the Red Planet. Listen to what your voice would sound like and discover what your weight would be on Mars.

]]>
CAC /en/museu-de-les-ciencies/exposiciones/exposicion-marte.html Our fascination and curiosity with Mars came to be 4,500 years ago, when the Assyrians first made reference to the Red Planet. The exhibition “Mars: The Conquest of a Dream” brings us a little closer to that fascination and to the challenges of future human colonization. The exhibition offers an overall picture of all the planet's perspectives – both from the scientific and from the cultural and historical points of view. Listen to what your voice would sound like and discover what your weight would be on Mars while putting your knowledge on the Red Planet to the test with images of Earth and Mars.

Through experiences grouped into five large blocks, you'll answer questions like, "Why does Mars spark so much interest?" Or, "What pieces of data define Mars and set it apart from the rest of our Solar System's planets?" You'll experience the planet from the perspectives of science and science fiction – its influence on the collective imagination and how it has been portrayed in culture. Lastly, you'll take a look at the different milestones of the space race to Mars, and you'll look to the future in terms of the planet's human conquest.

"Mars: The Conquest of a Dream” includes some pieces of great value due to their historical or documentary interest. Original books and astronomical instruments from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries belonging to Rome's Astronomic and Copernican Museum, such as De revolutionibus orbium coelestium, by Nicolás Copérnico or Astronomia Nova by Johannes Kepler; a fragment of a Mars meteorite that fell on October 3, 1962 in Nigeria; original illustrations of “The War of the Worlds;” a replica of the first Galileo Galilei telescope, and two 3D-printed models that simulate possible living quarters on the Red Planet.

The exhibition has been co-produced alongside the Telefónica Foundation, with the cooperation of several institutions such as Spain's National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA), the European Space Agency (ESA), and Italy's National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF), which have provided advice and lent pieces.
