03.02.2016


We are pleased to announce launch of the Silent Signal exhibition at QUAD, Derby, on Friday 5 February 2016. The evening starts at 7pm with a discussion between the artists and scientists who have collaborated to make the six works in the show. There'll be welcome speeches, refreshments, and other events happening around the building.

Silent Signal features six newly commissioned, animated work that explore the science of genetics, cell biology, immunology and epidemiology. It brings together artists working with animation and leading biomedical scientists to pursue new ways of thinking about the human body. Silent Signal is devised and produced by Animate Projects in collaboration with scientist Bentley Crudgington, and supported by a Wellcome Trust Arts Award and the Garfield Weston Foundation.
