One of the most influential scientists of the twentieth century, this Queen’s graduate formulated a theorem which physicists, philosophers and historians now consider to be one of the most significant developments in quantum theory. His proof of non-locality - that a measurement of particle A would instantaneously affect particle B, even if they were a vast distance apart - revolutionised the understanding of both quantum theory and the nature of the physical universe.

On the 50th anniversary of the publication of Bell’s theorem, this unique exhibition explores his life and the artistic response to his legacy by artists from across the world.
