Art and the Brain

There’s a lot going on in the brain—the way it works, how it is influenced and makes connections are topics both neuroscience and philosophy are steeped in. Art and creativity are often thought of as a realm beyond these subjects, but all are, in fact, inherently linked. In this lecture, Nicola Demonte will explore the interplay between neuroscience, art history and philosophy through paintings by de Kooning, Pollock, Mondrian and Warhol, and photography from Charcot. Creative efforts as a counter to disabilities and neurological disorders will also be discussed. Pre-register online. Read more about Art and the Brain
