Tue 5 Sep • 18:00 – 19:00

Fabrica Gallery
City Centre

Organised by:
  • Science and the Arts Section
  • Suitable for: 16+

    Explore the ethical issues that arise when art meets science and examine the consequences of artistic projects that nudge up against the newly possible. Can and should artist Anna Dumitriu exhibit fragments of DNA that cause antibiotic resistance in infectious diseases? What are the risks associated and who should be accountable? Join the debate.

    Presenting:
    Anna Dumitriu, an artist whose work fuses craft, sculpture and bioscience.
    Leena Hassan, a researcher at Brighton and Sussex Medical School studying antibiotic resistance.

    Panellists:
    Tim Henbrey, Head of Project Delivery at Science Gallery London.
    Melanie Newport, Gail Davey, and Bobbie Farsides, researchers at Brighton and Sussex Medical School.

    This event is part of the internationally renowned Trust me, I’m an artist series.
