In 2017 we ran our first Artist in Residence program, inviting nine talented artists to each spend a week exploring the theme of regeneration whilst being immersed in the research environment. They experienced cutting edge science first hand, took part in experiments and picked the brains of our brilliant scientists. They were also allowed to experiment with their art practice and incorporated techniques from the lab into their work. In turn, they inspired and challenged us with their curious and unique way of viewing our work and taught us exciting new ways of communicating science by creating beautiful art inspired by what they saw.
The wonderful pieces of art are being exhibited at the St Heliers St Gallery at the Abbotsford Convent from 25 May – 12 June. Join us on opening night, May 25th, and immerse yourself in regenerative medicine through the lens of an artist, enjoying jazz, drinks and light refreshments.
