Join us for this exiting new science art exhibition. Translations: from laboratory to print studio has been a truly collaborative project. Scientists from the Wellcome Centre for Anti-Infectives Research have been collaborating with artists from Dundee Print Collective for the past year. Through a series of conversations, workshops and exchanges, they have been exploring the similarities and differences between their worlds.

From 3 May 2019 to 31 Aug 2019

PARA-SITE-SEEING: DEPARTURE LOUNGE is a new art-science exhibition by Rod Dillon and Jen Southern, inviting you to imagine life from the perspective of the Leishmania parasite.

This deadly parasite has been travelling for millions of years, catching flights between humans, dogs and other animals using sand flies as their mode of transport. Throughout human history, the parasites have exploited conflict and competition to move between continents. Now, humans at University of Dundee's Wellcome Centre for Anti-Infectives Research (WCAIR) are fighting back!

From 1 Feb 2019 to 6 Apr 2019

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.

From 5 Oct 2018 to 19 Jan 2019


Co-commissed with NEoN Digital Arts Festival this exhibition considers the protocols for propagation of genetically modified plants as memorials. The speculative design project fuses biotechnology with botany, and employs University collections and research to re-tell stories of scientific discovery and genetic inheritance. 

Spirit Molecule I is support by University of Dundee's Botanic Garden and Science Center, Philadelphia USA.
