ARTlab collaborates with Likeside Arts and the Virtual Immersive Production studio for a new major exhibition

Cosmic Titans exhibition 25 Janaury – 27 April 2025.

The ARTlab in collaboration with Lakeside Arts Nottingham is developing a new exhibition, Cosmic Titans that revolves around the concept of blind ways of seeing, where the physics of the universe and black holes stand as poignant examples. These subjects share the common characteristic that they are inherently unobservable — either too small, vast, or distant to experience directly. In both science and art, we find avenues to transcend our limited perception envelope. Ingenious inferences and deductions enable us to perceive beyond our immediate senses, allowing us to envision realities that, while invisible to our eyes, bring us closer to understanding the intricacies of the cosmos. 

The exhibition will feature newly commissioned artworks by the ARTlab’s artists-in-residence as well as public engagement content suitable for all ages.
