Nina Rodin' Self portrait with two failed projects', 2016
We are pleased to present Philosophical Considerations on Art and Science, convened by Nina Rodin, a contemporary artist who received her Phd in Neuroscience from Oxford University and has professional experience in the neuroscientific research laboratory. Rodin will take attendees on a journey from the glorious complexities of the human brain as understood by neurophysiology today, through to notions of individuality, originality and sincerity in art. Along the way, she will confront some big, persistent questions: What is art? Why does it matter? And how do our responses to those questions inform the public interpretation of art, the art market, the commissioning of artworks, and artistic collaboration?
