King’s College London will play host to a new art event, Science Gallery London’s ‘Mouthy’ season.
The event, which will be held from July to November 2016, will explore the visceral space of the mouth, and everything inside it, and artists and scientists are invited to submit proposals for the ‘Mouthy’ season.
‘We’re especially looking for participatory projects that will engage our core 15-25-year-old audience,’ head of programming, Jen Wong said.
‘I’d love to see proposals that defy traditional categories, and I really hope to see some creative collaboration between people from all walks of life.
‘Our open call model means that literally anyone with a good idea can submit a proposal.’
The Science Gallery is looking to explore themes and topics including:
- The salivating mouth – the essential role of spit
- Healthy/unhealthy mouths – exploring bacteria and its impact on our mouths
- Sensational mouths – from pain to pleasure, our mouths are sensational spaces
- Changing mouths – how mouths have evolved and how the architecture of the mouth affects communication
- The unique mouth – how our mouths and their contents make us physically, socially and culturally distinctive, providing a platform for self-expression
- Future mouths – what will mouths of the future be like?
- Animal mouths – herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, invertebrate.
Deadline for submissions is 13 March 2016 at 17:00 GMT.
