GENDERS at Science Gallery London

Cancelled
Free

Science Gallery London’s fascinating GENDERS exhibition is now open to the public until late June. It’s an open and nuanced look at gender, the conflicts that surround it and the people most affected by them.

GENDERS: Shaping and Breaking the Binary

The exhibition sees more than a dozen artists on display, covering a broad range of media and messages. It’s a perfect blend of scientific study and art, with artists and researchers of all stripes coming together to explore and express gender and its relationships with culture, race, sexuality and age.

While gender has been one of our society’s defining issues for well over a century, the conversation has exploded recently—with previously suppressed voices making themselves heard. That makes this the perfect time to discuss, debate, and interrogate the world’s (and your own) views on deeply personal topics.

What to see and do

There aren’t really any weak links—so set aside at least a couple of hours to see everything if you can. Whatever you do, don’t miss Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley’s visceral interactive video game, WE ARE HERE BECAUSE OF THOSE THAT ARE NOT. Designed to archive and reflect black and trans lives, what you see will depend on your identity and the decisions you make inside the game.

Also of note is Mary Maggic’s Milik Bersama Rekombinan, which includes a scale model of the Kali Code River. Flanked by trash dredged from the real river, the model is filled with agar, sustaining a potentially plastic–digesting fungus.

Events at GENDERS

As usual, the gallery will be hosting free events throughout this season’s run. It’s a long list of one-off events to suit all tastes. From lectures and performances to workshops and opportunities to express yourself. Tickets may be free, but it’s still worth booking in advance. We’ll be including these events on our weekly mailing list—sign up below to stay in the know!
