Transmissions is an exhibition of artworks that have been created during our micro-residency earlier this year at the Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution (CIIE). Having returned to Edinburgh from LifeSpace, Dundee, this work will now showcase at Tent Gallery, Edinburgh College of Art. For this we would like to invite you to the opening event and reception at 5pm on Thursday 26th November, which will begin with a conversation/discussion event with ASCUS and participating artists Jo Hodges, Robbie Coleman and Anne Milne. Hear from the artists about their experiences of creating work that explores the microbial world and about their creative journey weaving in, out and around the science, and how this has informed the resulting artworks.

If you didn’t manage to get along to the Edinburgh International Science Festival earlier this year come along to Tent Gallery on the 26th to chat to the artists behind these innovative and engaging works that explore the world of science through the arts.

Exhibition continues:
12-5pm 27th Nov-4th Dec (closed Sunday)
Late Opening:
12-7pm Thurs 3rd Nov

Opening Event & Reception

About the exhibition

Transmissions is an exhibition of work produced from the ASCUS micro-residency at the Centre for Immunity Infection and Evolution (CIIE) in the University of Edinburgh. Researchers at the CIIE collaborate with other scientists on a daily basis but for this ASCUS micro-residency they joined forces with four artists working in different media, for a project that intertwines art and science and develops new perspectives on the CIIE’s research. The artists have spent fourteen days over a three month period engaging with the academics, and now they present to the general public the outcomes of their own forays into the science pursued by CIIE; to intrigue, inspire and inform.
