The Art of Innovation: From Enlightenment to Dark Matter

Winter Weekend 2019, 

Based on the landmark BBC Radio 4 series and Science Museum exhibition, the curator discusses the connections between science and art, revealing a new perspective on their contribution to the world around us. Through fascinating stories that explore the sometimes unexpected relationships between famous artworks and significant scientific and technological objects – from Constable’s cloudscapes and the chemist who first measured changes in air pressure, to the introduction of photography and the representation of natural history in print – she offers a different way of seeing, studying and interpreting the world.
