The Alliance with the Muses is a proposal for a free tour through the rooms following an itinerary that blends art and science, interweaving the spectator’s emotional experience before the paintings with scientific reflections based on the exhibits.

The aim is to break down the walls between disciplines and provide a unique vision of the nature that surrounds us through the languages of art and science, to create a visual narrative of science that awakens the imagination of the visitors, and to contemplate the paintings with a different look.

This is not an aesthetic explanation or an artistic critique of the works, but a way for science to become more accessible and immersive through this dialogue with art, and for the public to experience how the mysteries of science merge with the nuances of art to create a unique, original and, above all, emotional conceptual framework. This transmission of science through art creates landscapes between abstract scientific notions and concrete works of art that everyone can enjoy.

The activity The Alliance with the Muses, designed to celebrate Science Week, has a double format:

1) A free brochure to freely tour 15 works from the permanent collection, commented by members of La Academia Arte y Ciencia: Miguel Peiró, Candela Pérez and Alejandro Sanz; researchers from the Instituto de Física Teórica UAM/CSIC: Alberto Casas, David Cerdeño and Esperanza López, and the scientist from the Department of Biology of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Patricia Álvarez-Campos.

2) A round table moderated by Miguel Peiró and integrated by Patricia Álvarez-Campos, Alberto Casas, Esperanza López, Candela Pérez and Alejandro Sanz, which will take place in the Auditorium, on November 16 at 17.30, with free admission until full capacity is reached.
