Join 2 fabulous artists who work across myriad boundaries as we discuss what LGBT+ History Month means to us

About this event

LGBT+ History Month is a time to celebrate what we can achieve by breaking down barriers. In the past, LGBT+ representation in the sciences has been sparse, and even now our historic contributions may not be recognised; that is changing.

Emily Fong and Kit Kuksenok are 2 artists who know a lot about breaking down barriers. Their work spans disciplines, as they research, play and create between art and science. This conversation event promises to be fun, fascinating, and give an insight into how they, and we, can make our world a more creative, queer place.

Emily Fong is an artist exploring life and death, embodiment and emotion; the experience of existing in a human container. Her artistic practice is underpinned by the observation and communication of the life cycles of living things; growth, mortality and change from the micro to the macro. Over the time of Covid, she has been artist in digital residence at the Wellcome Centre for Anti-Infectives Research, University of Dundee.

Kit Kuksenok, PhD, is an artist, researcher, and code worker based in Berlin. Their multi-disciplinary research asks: how can the visual practices of scientific work suggest avenues for wider active participation?
