Dr. Anjan Chatterjee will discuss his groundbreaking research using neurology to advance our understanding of the evolution, production and appreciation of art. Is art an accident of our brain function, or is it a fundamental human instinct?  How do we account for art’s universality across the world as far back in time as we can record, while also accounting for its cultural underpinnings, its tremendous variety, local expression, and “art for art’s sake” property? Chatterjee explores these questions and offers new highly innovative ways of thinking about art and neuroaesthetics. Free and open to the public. Live stream here
