Join us for a night of multi-sensory performances and new encounters with matter as we celebrate the feeling of being part of something much bigger than ourselves.

Check out the programme

Highlights include:

S (Sulfur) – a new video work by Rachel Pimm and Lori E Allen, performed with a live soundtrack. S is a steam, a smoke, a hiss and a gurgle. This is the story of the alchemical element of sulfur told through the open mouths of volcanoes, fumaroles and geysers in the Danakil Depression of Ethiopia.

Is it magma? - Through alchemical experiments with geologists, volcanologists, founders and materials scientists, artist Jo Lathwood shapes and casts molten rock. Feel the heat as she creates real lava and a series of new sculptures in our courtyard.

You, me and everything in between - Find your sensory tribe and explore the invisible forces holding us and the Universe together, with BitterSuite,  Mosaic Clubhouse and a group of young creators. This project was supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

Friday Lates at Science Gallery London are a chance to explore the gallery after hours, enjoy a drink and bite to eat, and discover talks, workshops, performances and music brought to you by inspiring artists and researchers. This event is part of DARK MATTER: 95% of the Universe is Missing, a free exhibition and events programme at Science Gallery London imagining the unseen and questioning the invisible through art, physics and philosophy.
