The Art of Innovation explores the relationship between science and art over the past 250 years, and how it has helped to interpret, study and explore the world around us.

Art and science are in continual dialogue and have been symbiotic and antagonistic in their relationship to revolutionary ideas.

This ambitious exhibition will showcase the breadth of the Science Museum Group Collection, with iconic artworks and objects of scientific discovery displayed alongside works by some of the biggest names in visual arts: Hepworth, Hockney, Boccioni, Lowry, Constable, Turner and more.

Examining this ongoing relationship, the exhibition looks at the interaction between scientific progress and social change, how machinery has both influenced and threatened the human body, and how art and science have been used as tools that go beyond human senses to capture the unseen.
