Science Gallery London, London, London, United Kingdom
King's College London launches Science Gallery London to the public, with a preview weekend running from Friday 21st September to Sunday 23rd September.
First announced in 2013, the Gallery's new home on Guy’s Campus at King’s College London will be a space where science and art collide, showcasing collaborations between King's researchers, artists and young adults to address contemporary subjects in a thought-provoking way.
Hosting three seasons a year featuring exhibitions and events, the Gallery launches with HOOKED, which will delve into the complex world of addiction and recovery. From gambling to gaming and smartphones to social media, HOOKED will question what makes us as humans vulnerable to addiction and interrogate the underlying factors and routes to recovery. Artists, scientists and researchers including Rachel Maclean, Melanie Manchot and King’s academic Dr Sally Marlow will invite visitors to explore the latest research and thinking on the subject and to share your ideas about this topic.
