Art and Science – Three Illustrated Talks on an Undervalued Interaction
Session 3 – Modern Developments
The development of photography and digital media has changed the face of art forever, altering not just what can be shown, but the very method whereby it is delivered to the viewer. Where artists were once supposed to look for subjective inspiration, they can now refer to systems and codes that were once the language only of science and mathematics, creating a new repertoire of visual communication.
Artists such as Marc Quinn, Mark Wallinger and Damien Hirst have all used their work to open dialogues of argument about what belongs in a gallery and what remains appropriate only to a laboratory, while recent exhibitions inspired by Darwin’s theory of evolution demonstrate how art can articulate a world of ideas that remain controversial and open to ardent debate.
October 23, 30 and November 6 – all £4 and at 6pm
