Art: SNOLAB launched Drift, an art and dark matter residency in partnership with the Agnes Etherington Art Centre and the McDonald Institute. This trans-disciplinary residency explores the search for dark matter from an artistic perspective. The program began in 2019 when four artists — Nadia Lichtig, Josefa Ntjam, Anne Riley and Jol Thoms — visited SNOLAB’s underground facility to experience the search for dark matter and connect with the scientists and technicians who make that work possible. Drift is now open at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre and will remain there until May 31 when it will begin a tour that takes it to other gallery locations around Canada, including the Art Gallery of Sudbury. In addition to the exhibition, the Drift partners have created a digital interactive that allows audiences to explore the exhibit. This digital platform offers insight into the residency experience for the artists and showcases their final works. It also discusses the science behind SNOLAB and the search for dark matter.
