Save event

The photographs of Jem Southam unearth a long history of artists engaging with the natural world. Many artists have looked to scientific method and inquiry in order to inform their practice, while historically, there were scientists whose only entry into the field was through artistic practice. 

Terah Walkup, Art Curator at The Box, will explore this changing discourse around art and science from antiquity to the present day.

Date: Thursday 14 March
Time: 19:00–20:00
