The BRAIN-ART Initiative exhibit was very well received, and even was named “pick of the week” by the Chicago Tribune. The show has ended at the Beverly Arts Center and moved to the University of Chicago.
This was a nation-wide competitive art exhibit at the Beverly Arts Center, which I organized. We had a very large number of submissions of superb art works. It was juried by Aron Packer of the Packer Schopf Gallery who indeed had a difficult task. He selected 39 pieces by 33 artists. From this selection, Ms. Monica Hork chose 30 art works by 24 artists for the University of Chicago exhibit.
At the University of Chicago, this exhibit was renamed The Galaxy of the Brain.
Artists had submitted pieces investigating how our minds work, where thinking comes from, what is the origin of consciousness. It is not only scientists who can shed light on how our minds function – artists can also do so.
The Galaxy of the Brain was exhibited in the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine (DCAM) from November 1, 2014, to March 10, 2015. Ms. Monica Hork then selected 9 art works by 8 artists for the continuation of the exhibit in another University of Chicago location: the Knapp Center for Biomedical Discovery. This selection includes my own two paintings.
