Movies on the Verge Presents ‘Art & Mind’
May 16, 2019
Art & Mind is a journey into art, madness and the unconscious. An exploration of visionary artists and the creative impulse, from the Flemish Masters of the Renaissance to the avant-garde movement of Surrealism and the unsung geniuses of Art Brut and Outsider Art.
Featuring artists Hieronymus Bosch, Francisco Goya, Vincent Van Gogh, William Blake, Edvard Munch, Salvador Dali and many more.
Featuring interviews with art historians, artists, museum curators, psychiatrists, neuroscientists; and over 350 artworks from prestigious museums and collections worldwide including Tate Britain, Musée d’Art Moderne de la ville de Paris, Prinzhorn Collection, Rijksmuseum, La Halle Saint Pierre, ABCD Collection, Outsider Art Fair, Wellcome Collection, Bethlem Museum of the Mind, Lombroso Museum, Freud Museum, MAHHSA, Lille Métropole Museum of Contemporary and Outsider Art, Maisons Victor Hugo, Adamson Collection, Museum Dr Guislain, Henry Boxer Gallery and Museum Im Lagerhaus.
The film will follow a presentation “Strong Experiences with Music and the Brain” by Dr. Petr Janata, a Professor of Psychology at the Center for Mind and Brain at UC Davis. He received his B.A. from Reed College and his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon. His research focuses on how brain mechanisms of expectation, imagery, sensorimotor coupling, memory, and emotion support strong experiences with music, such as music evoked remembering and being in the groove.
