Science Museum’s New Media Space
London’s Science Museum will welcome a new Media Space in June 2013 that will exhibit and explore works by multi-disciplinary contemporary artists.
The £4m project, in collaboration with the National Media Museum in Bradford, UK, will see a new exhibition space, a flexible studio area for installations and events and a café and bar.
The Media Space’s first exhibition, Revelations: Experiments in Photography, will explore contemporary artists’ response to scientific photography from 1850 to 1920. This will include work created with the assistance of microscopes and telescopes, as well as aircraft machinery.
A developing focus on science and its filtration into the art world and vice-versa is also established by a new programme at the Barbican centre in London, titled Wonder: Art & Science on the Brain, which aims to bring together art and neuroscience. Keep an eye out for future coverage of this creative amalgamation in 2013.
