Explore the paths and waterways of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to discover four installations created by contemporary artists together with scientists and engineers from UCL.

Please note the exhibition will be closed on Saturday 26th October due to events in the QEOP.

Bringing together artists working in or from east London with UCL researchers, Trellis creates a space to examine the shared ideas that emerge when an artist and a researcher are given space to develop their mutual interests.

Located around the future site of UCL East, a new hub of discovery and co-creation, these partnerships between artists and researchers offer an insight into the world of research, and a study in the creative process. UCL researchers include Dr Elsa Arcaute, Dr Lena Ciric, Prof. Tony Kenyon, Efstathia Kostopoulou and Dr Tse-Hui Teh, working with artists Hugo Glendinning, Lucy Harrison, Amanda Lwin, David Rickard, Sara Ruddock and Alison Turnbull. 

Be one of the first to see these new sculptures, drawings and artist films, inspired by the history of the Lea Valley and the future of UCL East. 

Please note the exhibition will be closed on Saturday 26th October due to events in the QEOP.

Trellis is produced by UCL Culture and UCL East with support from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
