    Curiosity: Art & The Pleasures of Knowing explores the themes of fascination, inquiry, obsession, monstrosity and invention.

    The exhibition enters the realm where research and wonder meet; where artists interest themselves in physics and natural history, where scientists and rigorous researchers admit their capacity for awe and their attachment to bizarre artefacts and phenomena.

    A Hayward Touring and Turner Contemporary exhibition in association with Cabinet magazine, curated by Brian Dillon, Curiosity: Art & The Pleasures of Knowing playfully crosses the boundaries between art, science, literature, philosophy and popular culture.
