In this one-evening pop-up exhibition, some of the UK’s leading palaeontological artists will be showcasing their artwork and talking about how they go about reconstructing extinct animals and lost environments.

Join us to think about: How can artists reconstruct and recreate the life of the past? What challenges, techniques and difficulties are there in this process? How does the history of palaeontological artwork affect current conventions in the field? And what does palaeontological artwork tell us about the relations between science and art?


Attendance is free, but registration is required. Please sign up here.


This event is being organized in association with Popularizing Palaeontology Workshop II (more info here: www.poppalaeo.com ), and is funded by the King’s Together scheme and the History Department at King’s College London.
