North West Cambridge Art Programme Event: MAPPING THE STARS: Tania Kovats in Conversation with Professor Gerry Gilmore from the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge.

Tania Kovats has recently completed her year long Residency at North West Cambridge Development where she has been working with Professor Gerry Gilmore at the Institute of Astronomy.  She has been profoundly inspired by the Institute's role in the remarkable space observatory Gaia, which will map the Milky Way in unprecedented detail, and she has produced a spectacular sculpture in response to this entitled One Billion Objects in Space.  In this talk Professor Gilmore and Tania Kovats will look back over the year and will discuss the history of mapping the stars as well as the cultural implications of Gaia.

Free but booking essential: please email consultancy@contemporaryartsociety.org

Tania Kovats' sculpture One Billion Objects in Space is open to view at the Simplex Barn, North West Cambridge Development, Gravel Hill Farm, Madingley Rise, Madingley Road CB3 0FU on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11-4pm from 6th - 22nd June 2014
