ART x SCIENCE 2021 - a collaboration between the Royal College of Art and the School for Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences, King’s College London - explores how cutting edge medical imaging research is shaping the future of healthcare. Driven by curiosity, two scientists and five artists have collaborated and incorporated the views of community members to create two new art exhibits - In Utero and Hidden Stories of the Heart - that reimagine research for the Great Exhibition Road Festival. Come and chat with artists and scientists and have your say on the future of healthcare. 

In Utero invites you to step back into the place we all came from and have all forgotten - the womb. Immerse yourself in the multi-sensory installation to explore how medical imaging research is improving our understanding the way the maternal environment shapes the development of babies' brains. 

Hidden Stories of the Heart invites you to connect with the complexity of our hearts through creativity. Investigate the uniqueness of our hearts and discover how medical imaging is advancing our understanding of how traumatic life events can impact the shape and function of our vital organ.. 

This is a free drop-in exhibition but you will need an entry ticket for the Science Museum, London. Please refer to the Science Museum’s website for guidance on booking tickets for general admission.
