New Science Gallery Dublin show OPEN LABS is part exhibition, part experiment – showcasing DIY culture across design, research, technology and activism.


In INTIMACY we explored close relationships between friends, family and partners, but we also looked at moments of closeness between strangers, and tried to create some of them in the gallery with an experimental exhibition model. As part of this public engagement model, we had a programme of mediator-led events for the first time, which were programmed, hosted, facilitated and performed by Science Gallery Dublin mediators, the staff who normally work on the floor in our exhibitions. The events took place in our FOR PLAY gallery space.
