The four works of art by students from the National Academy of Art to be exhibited have been created under the mentorship of scientific supervisors from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) and interweave scientific topics and methodology, artistic means of expression and new technologies. They can be seen and experienced in the form of innovative art installations which will give the visitors an opportunity in an attractive and accessible way to get acquainted with the research of scientists from the National Museum of Natural History and the Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
 
The four art installations will be exhibited in Leventis Hall, Paleontology Hall, Birds Hall, and Botany Hall. They are the result of the first scientific and artistic #artscience residency at the BAS for exchange and collaboration between scientists and researchers in the field of natural sciences and students studying visual arts.
 
#artscience: Scientific and Artistic Residency at the Museum is organised by the National Museum of Natural History – Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) in partnership with the Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research – BAS, the National Academy of Art, DA LAB Foundation, and Bulgarian Science. The project is implemented with the support of the Sofia City Programme "Culture" – "Cultural-Educational Projects, Active Audiences" 2023.
