Quantum: a journey through the Standard Model

Our very own Dr David Berman will deliver the keynote lecture for the exhibition “Quantum, A journey through The Standard Model”.  The exhibition involves 11 artists who have grappled with the mind-bending ideas behind modern physics with some unexpected outcomes. The exhibition is a visual conversation between the participating artists about The Standard Model of Particle Physics through a diversity of disciplines. Using their works they raise a fundamental question posed by those who look in at this field from the outside. How do we connect with a subject, on a human level, that can at times be so alien and so far removed from common sense?

Within the exhibition delicate prints and drawings face expressionist pieces, figurative and kinetic sculptures set off character studies of physicists, icons collide with Black Holes and to top it all, visitors are invited to have a go at a hands-on "particle collider" set up in the gallery.

Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 7DG.  7-24 November 2013.

Dr Berman's talk is on 14 November at 7.30pm. Entry for the talk and exhimibition is free.
