Your Brain on Art: Agony & Ecstasy

Tuesday October 21, 2014 – 6:00-8:30pm

Join BMoCA for a series of conversations, performances, and demonstrations with artists, musicians, scientists, and historians, and explore creativity through the lens of science.

Agony & Ecstasy
In the fourth series of Your Brain on Art, BMoCA and CU Art Museum (CUAM) explore how the emotions of agony, ecstasy, and fear are expressed by artists and interpreted by viewers. On October 21 at BMoCA, CUAM exhibiting artist Todd Siler and nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin will discuss fear and possibility as it relates to art and environmental science. In the second program of the series on October 28, BMoCA hosts Colorado Shakespeare Festival actor, Karen Slack, who will perform a monologue of both agony and ecstasy; Julie Puma, an artist whose paintings convey the pain of aging with striking physical presence; and experts in the study of affect theory, Leonie Koban and Marina López-Solà, both PhD, Research Associates, Cognitive and Affective Control Laboratory, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder.

In collaboration with Bill Stoehr and the University of Colorado Boulder Department of Psychology and Neuroscience
