INTIMACY at Science Gallery Dublin

When : October 2018
Where : Ireland
Application Deadline : 9 May 2018

Science Gallery Dublin is seeking proposals for up to twenty works for INTIMACY, a free exhibition that asks what human connection is made of. INTIMACY will examine the science and art of connection between humans, bringing together neuroscience, art, behaviour, belief and trust. We’ll find closeness in surprising places and probe how INTIMACY can emerge between friends or opponents, across time and cultures, or amongst networks and groups. With electronic communication ever more pervasive, INTIMACY will examine how all this interconnectedness may disrupt traditional notions of togetherness, opening new avenues for connection, or killing off intimacy altogether. We are looking for works that explore the themes on intimacy in surprising and unusual ways. Provisional exhibition dates are October 2018 to February 2019.
