A Picture of Health is a collaborative project between the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences and the UAL: Central Saint Martins MA courses: Art and Science, and Fine Art.

A Picture of Health is a well-known phrase that conjures up a wide range of imagery and interpretations across different communities and scientific disciplines. To explore and capture this diversity, this project brought together artists and scientists to develop art work inspired by phrase A Picture of Health.

The pop-up exhibition, held at Elephant West, White City, was the culmination of a collaborative art-science project between MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences and UAL: Central Saint Martins. 

 

The project produced mobile pop-up artworks and exhibitions, with associated community and public programming .

 

The work created by five artist-scientist groups reflects current research topics that are vital to human health; past, present and future, including:

  • Antimicrobial resistance and infection,

  • Artificial intelligence and data science,

  • Environment,

  • Mental health: Dementia, Schizophrenia and Trauma,

  • Sleep.
