Event description

Description

Historically considered as complementary forms of knowledge, art and science parted ways as a result of the specialisation of the nineteenth century. Today their trajectories seem to intersect again, with a new emphasis on collaborative projects that see artists and scientists working side by side in the form of residencies, public engagement projects, and much more.

But what do art and science really have to gain from each other? Join our panel of artists and scientists for an evening of discussion on the benefits of this new (old!) way of thinking about interdisciplinary collaboration, facilitated by Chiara Ambrosio from University College London.

Chiara Ambrosio is a Lecturer in History and Philosophy of Science at University College London. She is particularly interested in the relations between art and science in the 19th and 20th centuries. She regularly collaborates with the UCL Public Engagement Unit and the UCL Museums and Collections on a number of interdisciplinary projects.

Cham Ghag is a reader in Physics at UCL, specialising in Dark Matter and High Energy Physics. He is one of the scientific consultants on the Laboratory of Dark Matters, a response by artists to scientific investigations into the unknown nature of the universe.

Elizabeth Murton is a visual artist working in installation and sculpture. She works with materials to explore ideas across disciplines. She was involved in the Laboratory of Dark Matters project.

The London Brain Project is a not-for-profit organisation which aims to engage the public with brain sciences and mental health through the arts. LBP was founded by a group of three developmental cognitive neuroscientists and one artist, with a shared passion for engaging the public with brain science.
