A really amazing collaboration between the Science Gallery and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) New York, Design and Violence is currently open in Dublin and running until 22nd January. The exhibition originally began as an online experiment hosted by MoMA, aimed at examining what violence looks like in modern society. It has expanded to include what happens when creativity and engineering fall into the wrong hands with contributions from both scientists and artists. This exhibition forces you to rethink design and war, how they collide and how we push their boundaries.
The Science Gallery is renowned for bringing cutting-edge developments in science, technology and the arts to the public since 2008, through interactive and award-winning exhibits. Some of its previous exhibitions include ‘Elements – The Beauty of Chemistry Elements’ which saw the Science Gallery exploring the elements in all forms, the design icon of the periodic table and creating chemical reactions in the atomic kitchen. ‘Strange Weather – Forecasts from the Future’ was another exhibition which examined weather, climate change and its impact using engaging and interactive displays.
For 2017 The Science Gallery has some brand new exciting exhibitions varying on topics such Artificial Intelligence and why humans aren’t needed, Music / Noise and possibility of a future collapse in society.
