Science Gallery Melbourne

 Registration is closed for this event
Join us for a special tour of the Science Gallery with Ethel Villafranca, featuring current exhibition BREAK THE BINARIES.

You may remember Ethel from our cardiParty at the Chinese Museum in 2019. Ethel is now working at the new Science Gallery Melbourne and is keen to show us around!

Bend, blend, blur or break society’s binary codes as part of BREAK THE BINARIES. Installations from local and international artists will present a playful and kaleidoscopic view of identity and genders, and their relationship with science, technology, culture, race, sexuality and creativity. With collaboration at its heart, this exhibition will create connections and conversation through personal perspectives, interdisciplinary creative practice and research at The University of Melbourne.

Science Gallery Melbourne is part of the Global Science Gallery Network and entry is free.

Meet in the Paccar Theatre in the Science Gallery at 2pm.
