Supported by The Wellcome Trust, NESTA, Creative Partnerships and QCA
Wonderful is a different kind of art show – The exhibition emerges from the discussions and realisations of artists and scientists working together. Wonderful is informed and inspired by today’s artistic and scientific developments, suggesting possible futures as they may be in five, ten or one hundred years. These are not the utopian or dystopian visions of science fiction but the discoveries of artists and scientists working collaboratively to test our responses to ethical questions and to develop industrial prototypes based on concepts taken from art. Curated by Clare Cumberlidge and designed by Ben Kelly www.wonderfulwebsite.net
