The final part of The Overview Effect is now open, upstairs in Gallery 1.

The Last Day (2023) is a seven-minute video by New York-based artist Rachel Rose, which comprises thousands of medium format photographs shot in her children’s bedroom.

The work is structured in seven days, and in each day, she lit the still lifes sequentially from sunrise into night. Each day’s still life symbolises a different epoch in the history of the earth. A bottle of milk stands in for the early amorphous, pre-vegetal world, a rubber bathtub toy illustrates ocean life, trucks become ciphers for late industrialisation.

On the last, seventh day, the artist made a radar sensor-enabled carpet which acts central protagonist, emitting light depending on its proximity to humans, ominously signalling the end of times.

The work lays bare that the history of earth’s landscape – from the primordial, to the prehistoric, to the industrialised and into the near future – is embedded in the development of imagination.

The Overview Effect is open Wed – Sat, 11am – 6pm.

What makes someone an expert? What are you an expert in?

“Experts by Experience: Who Knows Best?” is now on display in the Takeover Space on our ground floor.

Created by co-researchers with a range of expertise and lived experience, “Experts by Experience: Who Knows Best?” challenges the idea of ‘the expert’ and explores the limitations of traditional approaches to research. Their co-created manifesto, games and case studies advocate for the value of centring ‘experts by experience’ to challenge the neutrality of research and enable those most affected by an issue to generate knowledge that can bring about positive social change.

“Experts by Experience: Who Knows Best?” is on display in the Takeover Space on our ground floor until 5 June 2024.

And that’s a wrap!

Our most timely season to date, “AI: Who’s Looking After Me?” presented in collaboration with came to a close at the weekend after seven hugely successful months.

Named as one of the best free exhibitions in London by Evening Standard, Condé Nast Traveller and Visit London, the season aimed to look beyond the hype, and take a playful and questioning look at this fast-developing technology from a range of perspectives.

In total, we welcomed 30,000 visitors to the exhibition and accompanying events programme, which included two capacity Friday Lates; a visionary workshop with the Stemettes; lunchtime presentations from King’s researchers in the AI Forum; new spoken word performances by Poetry Luv’s young artists; a special recording of the BBC Global News Podcast; and a series of lively panel discussions exploring transparency, regulation, and AI’s implications for healthcare, the workplace and the arts.

A huge thanks to all the audiences, participants, collaborators and colleagues who made the season what it was!

On Saturday 13 January, join Sarah Selby in person at Science Gallery London for ‘Between the Lines: The Intervention’ - the culmination of her 2023 Lumen Prize-winning project.

‘Between the Lines’ highlights the risks of algorithms used within the UK’s immigration and justice systems in disconnecting individuals from the decisions made about them.

In this ongoing research project, first-hand testimonies of people detained by the UK border regime are encoded into synthetic DNA before being embedded into writing ink and inserted into pens. These pens are then distributed to individuals working on the frontline of UK immigration control, intending to trigger a process of reflection among the actors of this regime, as the personal experiences of those affected become part of the bureaucratic system.

Join Sarah in the Gallery between 12pm - 3pm as she fills the pens with the synthetic DNA writing ink, prepares them for distribution, and discusses her work in this informal durational performance.

Free entry, no need to book.

To mark World Mental Health Day 2023 on Tuesday 10 October, we’re excited to be one of the venues partnering with and to screen The Directors - a collaboration between Artangel, artist Marcus Coates and five individuals in recovery from different lived experiences of psychosis.

Positioned behind the camera, each individual directed Coates in a filmed re-staging of particular episodes from their lives. During the filming, Coates received instructions from each director leading to a dialogue which remains a key element in each film.

Through The Directors, Coates’ intention was to find ways in which people can relate to the breadth and complexity of psychotic experiences and to help reduce cultural stigma around psychosis and mental health in general.

On 10 October, IoPPN will host a free screening of one of the films, ‘The Directors: Marcus’ at the IoPPN at King’s Denmark Hill campus followed by a panel discussion between Coates, director Marcus Gordon and clinicians and experts in psychiatry.

On the same night, Science Gallery London will screen ‘The Directors: Mark’ followed by a panel discussion which looks at the role of the arts and artists in re-framing how we think about mental health conditions.

To book for ‘The Directors: Mark’ at Science Gallery London on Tue 10 October, follow the link in our bio.
