The Art of Extinct Animals: Pop-Up Palaeoart Exhibition
king's college london, december 2017
In this one-evening pop-up exhibition, some of the UK’s leading palaeontological artists showcased their artwork and talked about how they go about reconstructing extinct animals and lost environments.
We engaged with questions like: How can artists reconstruct and recreate the life of the past? What challenges, techniques and difficulties are there in this process? How does the history of palaeontological artwork affect current conventions in the field? And what does palaeontological artwork tell us about the relations between science and art?
