King’s Culture: Viewing the Invisible
A thought provoking new exhibition is now open to everyone for free. Viewing the Invisible is an exciting collaboration between Kings College London and London Fine Art Studios with the support of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). Bringing together scientists and artists to explore how similar their working methods really are. The exhibition is a multi-faceted display including videos, photographs, paintings and text, as well as an accompanying events programme.
Through the close study of shapes and constituent parts, scientists and artists alike seek to demystify the human form. This shared approach challenges the popularly held belief that science and art exist at polar ends of a spectrum. Viewing the Invisible showcases the ways in which both disciplines work together, exploring how scientists and artists can support each other in disseminating research and enriching creativity.
Best-selling author Naomi Alderman (The Power) generously gave her time, as did five other experts who have contributed to the promotion and practice of science. Viewing the Invisible breaks down perceived boundaries of knowledge, and seeks to demystify, inspire and inform enriching new ways of working.
