2- 23 September, Centrala
Lore + (Dis)order is a new sciart exhibition celebrating collaborations between scientists and artists working with the Centre for Systems Modelling and Quantitative Biomedicine (SMQB) at University of Birmingham.
It features the work of 8 artists who have produced creative responses to new contemporary research at the interface of biomedicine and quantitative science. Many of the artworks have also been inspired and informed by the lived experiences of people with the health conditions studied in the research – in some cases, the artists themselves have been directly impacted by these conditions. The result is an eclectic, personal and thought-provoking collection of pieces that highlight the value of interdisciplinary perspectives in all our lives.
Artists: Agi Haines, Charlotte Dunn, Vicky Roden, Lucy Hutchinson, Carol Breen, Karina Thompson, Mellissa Fisher and Patricia Thomas.
We are thrilled that beyond our SMQB colleagues, many IMSR researchers have been involved in these collaborations.
