Fundamentally Human: Contemporary Art and Neuroscience

(2011) Fundamentally Human: Contemporary Art and Neuroscience

Record type: Art Design Item


Fundamentally Human: Contemporary Art and Neuroscience exhibition brings the work of seven contemporary artists to the fore, whose work addresses aspects of the neurological sciences. Curated by BFA Fine Arts Department Chair of the School of Visual Arts in New York Suzanne Anker, the exhibition includes works by the artists Suzanne Anker (USA), Andrew Carnie (UK), Rona Pondick (USA), Michael Joaquin Grey (USA), Michael Rees (USA), Frank Gillette (USA) and Leonel Moura (Portugal).

Each interdisciplinary artist essentially employs new technologies ranging from robotics, 3-D scanning, Photoshop, rapid prototyping, microscopy and computational video. All are concerned with the mysteries and unity of nature and its processes, the transmission of knowledge and beliefs, and the reveries of human metaphors of being in time.

As the artists incorporate such metaphors invoked by matter, perception and memory, their discrete personifications are framed within a symbolic narrative.

This exhibition which combines science and art; invites us to view art through a scientific perspective and help us understand and question the strong connection between contemporary art and neuroscience.
