Eye of the Storm: An interdisciplinary art and science conference on scientific controversy
Location: Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG, UK
From esoteric arguments over the structure of the universe to highly charged public controversies around the use of stem cells, The Arts Catalyst is bringing together an international line up of artists and scientists to debate today's hot issues in science and society in the Eye of the Storm on 19 and 20 June.
This two-day conference at Tate Britain will touch on brilliance and ego, obsessions and cover-ups, dissent and whistle-blowing, big science, high finance, deviant science, the reliability of knowledge and the legislation of uncertainty. Eye of the Storm develops Tate's mission to present new research and debates within visual culture into the area of contemporary interrelationships between art, science and society.
