The Triptych of Science art exhibition (25-26 July 2024)

An invitation to an art exhibition about research culture at Imperial

The Good Science Project is pleased to announce its first art exhibition, ‘The Triptych of Science’, to be held in the Chaplaincy Multi-Faith Centre on July 25th and 26th.  ‘The Triptych of Science’ is made by a group of Imperial scientists, working under the guidance of artist-in-residence Ella Miodownik. All College members, and their families and friends, are warmly invited.

The exhibition is open for visitors without registration, but if you would like to come to the Private View and reception, from 4-7pm on Thursday 25th July, please register here. We believe we can guarantee you a good time.

The project brief was to represent vital aspects of the life scientific, especially those central to daily laboratory practice. Three concepts form the animating principles of the art piece. These are Time, Balance and Emotion, the foundations of research familiar to all scientists. Expect to see new perspectives on science, its methods of research, and its communication. And if you believe that the boundaries between art and science are not so clear, and that art sometimes is a resource for good science, then this event is definitely for you.

The Good Science Project is a collaboration between the Office of the Vice-Provost (Research and Enterprise) and Imperial’s Science Communication Unit.
