A new science and art venue is opening later this year at London Bridge that aims to make scientific research accessible to visitor through installations and a programme of exhibitions and events.
Science Gallery London, which will feature exhibition spaces, an auditorium, a café and a shop, has been designed by LTS Architects and is situated on the site of Boland House, part of the 18th century Guy’s Hospital in London Bridge.
During the project the last undeveloped Georgian courtyard in London has been transformed from a car park into a newly-landscaped public square.
Although it’s open to everyone, the target audience will be 15-25 year olds.
Visitors to the Science Gallery will be asked to examine urgent global issues through the creative responses of artists working in collaboration with King’s researchers and scientists.
Science Gallery London will host three seasons a year and its inaugural exhibition HOOKED will delve into the complex world of addiction and recovery. From gambling to gaming and smartphones to social media, HOOKED will question what makes the human race vulnerable to addiction and interrogate the underlying factors and routes to recovery.
Artists, scientists and researchers including the internationally-renowned artist group, Blast Theory; artist Rachel Maclean; and King’s academic, Dr Sally Marlow will invite visitors to explore the latest research and thinking on the subject while questioning their own ideas about the scientific and cultural aspects of this much debated topic.
The venue, Science Gallery London will open on 21st September 2018. The new science gallery will be next to Guys Hospital, on Great Maze Pond, SE1 9GU.
