We are pleased to invite Professor Semir Zeki, an expert on visual cognition and neuro-aesthetics, to speak with Tatsuo Miyajima, one of the most prominent Japanese artists practising today and who has been influenced by cognitive science. Conceptual approaches to art are familiar to contemporary audiences, yet there remain fundamental questions of what art is and where it originates. There are also questions of aesthetics when the pieces themselves are participant-centred. If science is able to fully explain the experience of art, does it reduce art’s significance?
