Art and Science, a SRUK initiative – First Exhibition and Awards Ceremony

· London

The first exhibition and the awards ceremony of the “Art and Science, a SRUK initiative” was held on Saturday in London. With this initiative, the Society of Spanish Researchers in the UK (SRUK/CERU) aims to establish a space to favor the synergy between Art and Science, to finally convey the scientific knowledge in a more understandable and suggestive format to the general public. This initiative has allowed the interaction between eight pairs of artists and scientists who explored the same scientific question from their different ways of working. The resulting art creations were exhibited at the Spanish Institute “Vicente Cañada Blanch” in London. Arthur I. Miller, Emeritus Professor of History and Philosophy of Science at University College London and keynote speaker at the event, illustrated how “Art and science are fusing in the 21st century and collaborations between artists and scientists have produced stunning works”. Finally, “Common Bio”, “Regeneration and Recycling” and “Seed dispersal in a Fragmented Landscape” pieces were awarded the prizes. The resulting art pieces will be exhibited later this year in Cambridge to afterwards travel to Madrid and be exhibited in the “Telefónica Foundation Space” in November.
