Description

How do our brains process beauty, color, and texture? Join Nancy Etcoff for a neuroscientific analysis of works in deCordova New England Biennial 2019.

Dr. Etcoff is a Harvard Medical School psychologist and an acclaimed neuroscientist. She researches the cognitive bases of happiness and the perception of beauty and teaches courses such as “Neuroaesthetics” and “The Science of Happiness.” Several of the artists in the Biennial are experimenting with human cognition and perception, making viewers question what they see and why. Etcoff will draw connections between art and the mind, offering a unique perspective on the Biennial and addressing the complex processes of visual perception.
