John Walter: CAPSID

This major exhibition addresses a crisis of representation surrounding viruses such as HIV, by bringing new scientific knowledge about viral capsids to the attention of the wider public using methods and references pulled from a simmering maelstrom of popular culture; from the cartoon antics of Adventure Time to Vegas hotel carpet design. In turn, this scientific knowledge is enabling Walter to innovate artistic concepts such as collage, colour field painting and pattern-making.
