You are invited to join us in celebrating the opening of our new exhibition Disentangle: Science in a Gendered World at LifeSpace

At 5pm, we will host an informal introduction to the exhibition with the curator, artists and scientists.

Disentangle is an exhibition of contemporary art, historical objects and scientific case studies that consider how gender can be ‘seen’ or ‘positioned‘ in the world, and the effect of these perceptions on science. 

It features art works by Kira O’Reilly & Jennifer Willet, Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, Clara Ursitti and Ker Wallwork and selected objects from the museum collections at the University of Dundee.

A display of Professor Londa Schiebinger’s project Gendered Innovations demonstrates how accounting for sex and gender in the scientific process affects results.

Curated by Cicely Farrer for LifeSpace in collaboration with Athena SWAN and with support from colleagues in School of Life Sciences.

Kira O'Reilly

When we begin to interact with spaces in ways that depart from convention, there are revelations both about those spaces/places, the bodies that are moving in, through and with them.

Monday, 23 July 2018 - 12:30pm
Kira O'Reilly, Clara Usitti, Ker Wallwork

A sharing of practice by artists Kira O’Reilly, Clara Ursitti and Ker Wallwork followed by an open discussion.

This event is part of the project "Doing Science in a Gendered World"; an event, workshop and exhibition (Feb-April 2019) organised by LifeSpace and School of Life Sciences Athena SWAN.

How might we trouble the ways we are accustomed to ‘see’ or ‘position’ gender in bodies? When might the infrastructure of an organisation create a gendered experience? Where can we find the ‘in between’ spaces that create more complex and truer understandings of gender and how people experience it differently? Does our behaviour assume something of another person because of their gender? When do we perform so-called masculinity or femininity in order to move forward in a situation.
