    Art Displays

Science parallels art as a subject matter and a source of inspiration.

Here at Science World, we are proud to work with local artists who are interested in and inspired by science. Our art displays showcase different works of art within our false creek facility. Recent displays have included art work by Peter Holmes, Sharon Kallis, Michael Hall, Chris Waind and a group of art students from Emily Carr University. We also host an annual display of the Nikon Small World Photomicrography Contest winners.

Currently On Display

Flathead en Plein Air exhibition

In the summer of 2012, scientists and artists descended on BC’s Flathead River Valley (located in the southeastern most corner of the province) to document its rare species, explore its breathtaking landscapes and experience its natural beauty. The result? A collection of 13 original paintings from the Flathead—a region that has been described as one of the most ecologically important places on the planet.

Quantum Entanglements

This gallery exhibition is the result of an interdisciplinary studio course that uses science as a lens through which to view and speak about the current world and the invisible forces of the known universe, interacting with these perspectives in the context of art practice. It shows a selection of final works and a sampling of experimental “response” studies by Emily Carr University students that took part in the Artist in Residence program at TRIUMF in Fall 2014. The exhibition is on until June 1, 2015.
