Multiple Sclerosis, art and science, exhibition, art installation, Cambridge, research, stem cell, growing art partnerships


On Sunday March 17th I am taking part in a special exhibtion to be held at the historic Cambridge Union Society debating chamber during the Cambridge Science Festival. The exhibition is free and open for one only day from 10am - 5 pm.

The What a Nerve exhibition involves 6 artists (CDS member Jo Tunmer, Charlotte Morrison, Elizabeth Fraser, Virginia Mayo, Liza Reid from Growing Art Partnerships and Kelly Briggs), who explore the disease Multiple Sclerosis, bringing together stem cell researchers and MS affected persons.

The result is a stimulating exhibition of art expressing disease, science and cells through acrylic, glass, paper, photography, paint and sound. I will be installing an art installation in response to my own personal experience of a close family relative living with Multiple Sclerosis.

If you would like to attend the talk where the 6 artists discuss the work they have produced for this colloboration please book for your free place here. We would all love to see you there.

For more information about the event please go to the Cambridge Science Festival website.
