About

Join us for a Finissage & In-Conversation event with John Walter and Jonathan P Watts on Sunday 8 July 2018, 3pm.

This event celebrates the final day of CAPSID - the latest multi-media maximalist installation by John Walter (b. 1978), best known for Alien Sex Club. Presenting a compelling, sometimes riotous and often surreal world incorporating 250 works of art, CAPSID is the result of collaboration between Walter and molecular virologist Professor Greg Towers of UCL#towerslab. 

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. In turn, this scientific knowledge is enabling Walter to innovate artistic concepts such as collage, colour field painting and pattern-making. CAPSID is co-commissioned by CGP London and HOME Manchester (10 Nov 2019 - 6 Jan 2019). Supported by a Large Arts Award from Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England Grants for the Arts. The exhibition is accompanied by the new HOME publication CAPSID.
