About: About Science Gallery London

Science Gallery London is a new cultural venue where art and science collide. The programme connects art, science and health to drive innovation in the heart of the city. A flagship project for King’s College London, the Gallery focuses on engaging 15–25-year-olds in cutting-edge research in science, the arts and design. Through exhibitions and events, Science Gallery London brings together scientists, artists, students and local communities in new and innovative ways to stimulate fresh thinking.

BLOOD: Life Uncut is a pop-up season taking place across various sites in London Bridge and Peckham in the lead up to the new Gallery opening in spring 2018.

The new permanent Gallery, currently still under construction, will be based in a renovated Georgian building on King’s College London Guy’s Campus at the foot of The Shard in London Bridge.

Science Gallery London is part of the Global Science Gallery Network connecting scientists to artists worldwide. Each Science Gallery will provide its home city with a platform for live research and experimentation – exposing local communities to unexpected and surprising exhibitions and inspiring the next generation of creative thinkers.
