Colors of the Brain

April 18, 2008
6:00 p.m.

Presented by The Museum of Modern Art; the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAAP) of Columbia University; and Studio Olafur Eliasson, this program reviews and critiques contemporary cultural theories of color that have emerged from artistic and scientific practices. Discussions and presentations seek to build a contemporary epistemology of color based on recent artistic and scientific experiments and on cognitive research into color perception, with an emphasis on the role that color plays in the physical environment.
