Art/Science symposium

Art/Science Symposium 2022

Global perspectives on communicating science and data through creativity.


Tilly Boleyn, Head of Curatorial, Science Gallery Melbourne

Tilly is a massive nerd who is curious about the world and everything in it. She has a background in museums, galleries, education, festivals, broadcasting and research. Originally a microbiologist, Tilly ran from the lab into the arms of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, where she quickly discovered a natural talent as a science gossip – meaning she better at talking about other people’s science rather than doing her own.

She has curated exhibitions on health, medicine, experimentation, the moon, play, the voice, engineering, waste, sustainability and is now working towards the opening show at Science Gallery Melbourne, MENTAL, and beyond. Tilly is currently delighted by blurring the boundaries between science, art, design, technology, maths, engineering, large-scale-batteries-powered-by-human-urine and doing things she's told aren't allowed.
