This show brings together the often polarised opposing ‘disciplines’ of art and science. The connection between the different art practices in the exhibition is that they are defined by the artists Bryony and Chloe Pritchard, Hondartza Fraga and David McNab as being in some way related to science. 
'There are various ways of perceiving consciousness ranging from the subjective to the objective. In order to be able to process the enormous amount of knowledge that has accumulated over the centuries, it has become necessary to split information into different disciplines.' 
The exhibition is supported by Hybrid Art Science Networking Association,Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery and Arts Council England, Yorkshire. It is linked to a symposium at The Thackery Museum, Leeds on 20th March. For more information on the symposium please email

The Persistence Works exhibition is one of several throughout the city, for more information visit or email
Arts Council England works to get great art to everyone by championing, developing and investing in artistic experiences that enrich people's lives. As the national development agency for the arts, they support a range of artistic activities from theatre to music, literature to dance, photography to digital art, and carnival to crafts. Great art inspires us, brings us together and teaches us about ourselves, and the world around us. In short, it makes life better. Between 2008 and 2011, they will invest £1.3 billion of public money from government and a further £0.3 billion from the National Lottery to create these experiences for as many people as possible across the country.
