Art, Science and Lockdown Baking
6:00 pm on May 27, 2021 | Online Talk
Joinour hosts, actor Russell Tovey and gallerist Robert Diament from the popular talkART podcast series, in conversation with participants in the #flowcellular project and invited guests to discuss the intersections of art, science and how lockdown shaped the spaces they worked in, the materials they chose and the conversations that emerged.
Grab your drink of choice, have a night off the tele and bring your curiosity to our next season of Genome Lates. Since lockdown started we have brought researchers from our Cancer Ageing and Somatic Mutations programme together with artists and public participants in a collaborative creative project exploring the relationship between ageing and DNA. This year’s Genome Lates season draws on the science at the heart of the #flowcellular project and asks what can our genes tell us about how and why we age? Join us to find out if animals can give us the answers to longer life? Is disease always written in our genes? And what happened when lockdown baking inspired a new approach to dialogue across science and art? Join us for conversations and food-based experiments from April to September 2021.
Our panel for the night: Hosts Russell Tovey and Robert Diament in conversation with Artist Lucy Steggals, The Saturday Museum, Curator of Temporary Exhibitions Shamita Sharmacharja, Wellcome Collection, Researcher Jannat Ijaz, Wellcome Sanger Institute, #flowcellular contributor Mattie O’Callaghan, student at the Royal College of Art.
