Lighthouse is thrilled to be calling for proposals for a unique interdisciplinary art and science workshop, which we are developing in collaboration with The Arts Catalyst, for Brighton Science Festival in 2011.

Laboratory Life is a production workshop, exhibition and talks programme, exploring the use of new technologies in biomedicine. It takes place in February and March 2011.

At its heart is an innovative publicly accessible production workshop – or “open laboratory” – which will result in new art-science projects. Over nine days, Lighthouse will be transformed into a temporary laboratory in which five new projects will be created by collaborative teams led by internationally recognized artists Andy Gracie, Adam Zaretsky, Kira O’Reilly, Bruce Gilchrist and Anna Dumitriu.

The projects created in the open laboratory will be subsequently showcased in a series of public events, including a temporary exhibition at Lighthouse, and in public presentations in Brighton, London and beyond.

We are delighted to be invite proposals to participate in the laboratory from individuals in the early stages of a career in art, medicine, science or technology. We welcome proposals from emerging practitioners and students.
