In order to get audiences engaged with art in multiple senses, a neuroscientist and museum director collaborate in augmenting diverse museum programs; for instance, a horror film screening accompanied by a neurologist’s talk or based on a neuroscience observation “our brains are designed to respond to change, diversity and motion,” a smaller size of gallery with fewer artworks is being created.
“There are things that we know about the brain that help explain how we see the world, how we interact with the world as we move through it,” Mr. LeDoux said.
Showing good art or historically significant artifact is one role museums take, however, at the end of the day we can’t help asking what it means to be exposed to art and the meaning of art. Looking over the other fields–interdisciplinary approach–may yield an ultimate answer.
