Art and Science Resource & Tours

Art and Science both value critical thinking and experimentation and, at times both bring to the fore ethical and cultural issues. Investigate the connections between Art and Science by exploring a diversity of works in the Gallery’s collection.

“The most important quality of art and science is curiosity” – Fabian Oefner, Artist and Photographer
