The Scientific Method

The Scientific Method


LECTURE, DIALOGUE, DEMONSTRATION How do we make sense of today’s information overload, from post-truth politics to mind-boggling quantum physics and neuroscience? The Scientific Method shows how artists have revealed the structures and systems of knowledge that we consume daily, subverting the accepted and confounding the expected. This exhibition brings together recent moving image works by artists such as Amelia Crouch, Patricia Esquivias, Sian Robinson Davies, Liz Magic Laser, Kate Liston and Yuri Pattison, alongside drawings by KP Brehmer and works by John Latham, Semiconductor and John Smith presented in association with LUX. Some artworks appropriate a faux-scientific rhetoric, others highlight the potentially unanswerable questions of contemporary science, or employ humour and irreverence to puncture conventional wisdom. Departing from the objective knowledge sought by the classical scientific method, these artists often foreground the bodily, the personal or anecdotal. Alongside The Scientific Method, artist and co-curator Amelia Crouch has produced a new limited edition print available to buy in The Tetley’s shop.
