Imagining the Brain: Six artists explore the inner workings of the brain

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


This opening exhibition for The Brain Observatory's new premises, a uniquely combined public-facing lab and museum in downtown San Diego, features six artists who explore how the intangible mind relates to the physical object that we call the brain. Susan Aldworth, Andrew Carnie, Annie Cattrell, Suki Chan, Pablo Garcia Lopez, and Nina Sellars are at the forefront of an international community of artists who sustain serious interest in scientific research. They often work closely with scientists and clinicians in laboratory and healthcare settings. Several of them are based in the UK, where the creative dialogue between art and bioscience has enjoyed significant funding support since the 1990s. This art-science movement continues to contribute cultural insight and empathy to the human quest for health and well-being. The exhibition is jointly curated by Dr Marius Kwint, Reader in Visual Culture at the University of Portsmouth, UK and Dr Jacopo Annese, President, and CEO of the Brain Observatory.
