About: Science Gallery Melbourne

Science Gallery is coming to Melbourne

Science Gallery Melbourne is a dynamic new gallery at The University of Melbourne that will engage young adults through the intersections of art and science. The gallery will open in 2020 as part of an exciting innovation precinct at the heart of Melbourne. In the lead up to opening, Science Gallery Melbourne will host a diverse program of pop-up exhibitions, performances, events and workshops in locations around The University of Melbourne Campus and within central Melbourne. Blood: Attract & Repel is Science Gallery Melbourne’s inaugural pop-up exhibition program.

The Global Science Gallery Network

At the vanguard of the STEM to STEAM movement, Science Gallery is the world’s first university-linked network dedicated to public engagement with science and art. Our mission is to ignite creativity and discovery where science and art collide. Through our global network of galleries and touring exhibitions, we have reached millions of 15-25 year olds worldwide. Our transdisciplinary programs feature emerging research and ideas from the worlds of art, science, design and technology, and are presented in connective, participative, and surprising ways.

Science Gallery International is a non-profit organisation catalysing the growth of the network, which now has six members across four continents – Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, Science Gallery London at King’s College London, Science Gallery Melbourne at The University of Melbourne, Science Gallery Bengaluru at the Indian Institute of Science, Science Gallery Venice at Ca’Foscari University of Venice, and Science Gallery Lab Detroit at Michigan State University.
