Body and Brain

Exhibition Dates: May 10 – June 20, 2013

Juror: Ginny Sykes

Entry Deadline: February 13, 2013

What does it mean to “know something” in the body? What are the implications when our hair stands on end in fear, when we feel a rush of adrenalin, or just feel truth in our gut? The relationship between the mind and body has fascinated humankind for centuries. Research in the arenas of science, psychology, the arts, religion, and spirituality raises questions about this connection and how it impacts our lives. Does what we think affect our physical health? Or vice versa? Does spiritual or mental illness affect the body? Do the shapes, colors, and abilities of our bodies affect how we see or know ourselves, how others see us, and how we understand our lived experience in the 21st century? How does science and technology impact this relationship?


Artists of all genders are invited to explore these and any other facets of this endlessly fascinating area of inquiry with works in all media.
