Exchanges Exhibition and Stem Cell Culture

An exhibition of shared creativity

19 June - 1 July 2017, Michaelhouse Cafe, Trinity Street

Jenny Walsh's 'State of Flux'. Check out more photos of the exhibition here.

At the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute we are always looking for creative ways to prompt debate about stem cell research and gather perspectives from the wider community. In this exhibition, 11 of our researchers were paired with local Cambridge artists to create works that both challenged and celebrated the potential of stem cells. We hoped the artwork would offer some new insights into the cutting edge research that our scientists undertake and provide a flavor of the complex cellular world that we are striving to understand and harness. We were not disappointed!

The Exchanges project was the brainchild of two graduate students Katie Tremble and Mariana Alves (Silva group) and was delivered in partnership with Pint of Science

The exhibition was part of the MRC Festival of Medical Research which took place between 17 - 25 June, 2017.

A Creative Climax, Stem Cell Culture

Thursday 29 June, Michaelhouse Cafe, Trinity Street

To mark the finale of the exhibition we held an evening for the stem cell curious, headlined by performance poets Fay Roberts, Robin Lamboll, J.S Watts, Emma Ormond, Benedict Cox and Nikki Marrone. The evening also provided an opportunity for visitors to speak to the artists and scientists behind the artworks in the exhibition, and try their hand at a Neural Knitwork, accompanied by a String Trio.
