Predictability and its Limits exhibition


Predictability and its Limits

Hosted by LSE Arts

Atrium Gallery, Old Building,

This exhibition shows drawings that artist Fiorella Lavado produced in collaboration with an LSE based project aiming to understand the scope and limitations of model-based predictions, in particular in the context of climate modelling. 

Over the past few years artist Fiorella Lavado and Philosopher Roman Frigg have been collaborating in an art-science project concerning research about the limits of predictability, in particular in the case of climate models. For almost a decade, Frigg has been working with group of physicists and statisticians in LSE’s Centre for the Analysis of Time Series in a project aiming to understand the scope and limitations of model-based projections. Lavado, who likes to explore diverse scientific themes and to take inspiration in the world beyond direct sensual experience, has got involved in the project about five years ago and started producing drawings making key insights of the project visible, and thereby accessible to an audience of non-specialists. 

This exhibition runs from 27 February to 24 March.

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the LSE Arts website.
