GHP FINal v low res


For many years C. P. Snow’s defining statement about the two, non-communicating worlds of the sciences and the humanities has been a constant hum behind cultural life in this country. Meanwhile however, artists, writers and scientists, ignoring this, have been deeply involved in collaborations, discourse and exchanges. Many of those involved have been brought together by Robert Devcic’s London gallery GV Art and by Garry Kennard’s charity Art and Mind. In recognition of this continuing and growing dialogue we have brought together an extraordinary group of people who have been associated with this movement over the last decade. It displays that, contrary to common thought, Snow’s two worlds have become, perhaps always were, one.
