VISCERAL: Symposium

Saturday 29 January
VISCERAL: Symposium | Saturday 29 January | Science Gallery

As part of Science Gallery’s new exhibition VISCERAL: THE LIVING ART EXPERIMENT, ground-breaking art science lab SymbioticA will host a symposium that will cover cultural strategies that engage with and scrutinise development in the life sciences, with a particular emphasis on hands-on artistic research embedded within a biological laboratory. Two of SymbioticA’s co-founders and a selection of SymbioticA residents will speak on art and biology from different perspectives: political, ethical, historical, aesthetical and more.
