Event description

Description

Can collaboration between artists and scientists help us to acquire new perspectives and/or a broader understanding of the cultural context of scientific work, and who benefits most?

Professor Martin Kemp, broadcaster and author of many publications on art and science will reflect on these questions in his talk “The Sci-Art Business: Some Reflections” at a lunchtime seminar in the Chemistry Research Laboratory.

After the seminar you are invited to view sculptures by artist Katharine Dowson and meet her to learn more about her practice.

Researchers in the Chemistry Department are working to find new ways to combat cancer. As part of a public engagement project for Oxford Open Doors, the Department is host to a series of works by the artist Katharine Dowson, whose sculptures of radiotherapy patients are displayed in the foyer of the Chemistry Research Laboratory.
