Episode 68 – Illuminating the Self at Vane and Hatton

We’re back after our impromptu break with special guest Ellie, who’s back from China for a small amount of time ad eager to chat about some art! For this episode we went along to Vane Gallery and Hatton Gallery to check out Illuminating the Self, which takes place across both galleries.

“Illuminating the Self is an exhibition of new work by artists Susan Aldworth and Andrew Carnie in response to groundbreaking research led by Newcastle University into developing a new treatment for epilepsy.”

It’s such an interesting exhibition about a super important and fascinating topic, and to see if spread across two galleries is unlike anything we’ve really seen – I can’t recommend it enough!

Episode 67 – Origins and Endings at the Hatton

This week the girls popped along to the Hatton to check out one of their new exhibitions, Origins and Endings, by artist Marriane Wilde and composer Mark Carroll, which does one of our favourite things and combines science and art.

“The exhibition will highlight partnerships that have culminated in creative works in response to the academic research carried out by PEALS (Policy, Ethics & Life Sciences Research Centre), and ranges across the broad themes of being human.”

We thought it was pretty fab and we’re excited to go back and see the other science-y exhbition they have on.
