Science Gallery showcases Yandell Walton in Friday night program

Science Gallery Fridays

Science Gallery launched its vibrant Friday night social program last month and is now gearing up to bring Yandell Walton’s immersive work to the gallery for one night only on May 3.

With “young people at the heart of everything we do”, Science Gallery formulated the Friday night socials coming out of lockdown after recognising a desire for youth to connect and experience art.

Held once a month throughout exhibition seasons with their current NOT NATURAL currently on display, the free event invites people to come together and experience the unexpected in a fun, social setting.

“We are not trying to be a normal art gallery and we’re not trying to be a science museum – we’re trying to be something in-between; a place that truly experiments, tries, and prototypes things,” head of curatorial at Science Gallery, Tilly Bolin said.


We’re putting performances in learning spaces and exhibitions in corridors and inviting dance students to come in and take over wherever they want throughout the gallery. These Friday nights give our programming team agency to break-out and experiment.


Alongside exploring the captivating NOT NATURAL exhibit, attendees will be immersed in Yandell Walton’s groundbreaking collaboration with Harrison Hall in the gallery’s theatre space, where you will witness the “blurred lines between humans, technology, plants and the artificial world”.

Using motion capture, photogrammetry, and digital communication networks, Yandell’s work is an innovative example of “pushing technology in a new direction”.



Dj Huntress will also be performing live sets throughout the program.

“We have two exhibitions a year, so after this Friday night social, there’ll be a June social and that will be the last one of NOT NATURAL,” Ms Bolin told Inner City News.

“One of my deep loves would be if people were able to make new friends at these socials that maybe they’ve seen across the room in a lecture or tutorial or get exposed to a particular form of performance or a way of thinking about the world that shifts their perception.”

“Come in for free, there are food and drink available, and discover the happenings throughout the gallery that will hopefully surprise and delight you.” •
