Joan Fontcuberta: Stranger Than Fiction at The Science Museum

Discover the incredible fictions of Joan Fontcuberta in his first major UK exhibition, featuring six documentary narratives that mix fact with fiction and science with art, currently running at The Science Museum. In addition there will be a unique opportunity to attend an illustrated lecture by Joan Fontcuberta, followed by the artist in conversation with Stranger than Fiction's curator Greg Hobson and an audience Q&A.The event will conclude with a book signing.

Using the visual languages of journalism, advertising, museum displays and scientific journals, these convincing yet subversive and deadpan works are an investigation into photography's authority and our inclination to believe what we see. Exhibition highlights include astonishing photographs of mermaid fossils, incredible reports of mysterious fauna and eye-opening photographs of rare plant species.

The exhibition will take place at The Science Museum Media Space Gallery until 9 November 2014. Find out more here.

An Evening with Joan Fontcuberta will be on Monday 27 October 2014, 19.00–20.30. You can find out more here.
