“Exploring wonder: art, science and creative inquiry” A public lecture by the Convergence, Perceptions of Neuroscience initiative (April 13, 2018)
The Convergence Art-Sci Sci-Art Conferences Series is delighted to host Bettina Forget, a visual artist, gallery owner and art educator whose research explores the intersection between art and science. Ms. Forget owns and runs the Visual Voice Gallery, which features contemporary art exhibitions that create a dialogue between art and science. She is also the Art-Science Researcher for the SETI Institute’s Artist-in-Residence (A.I.R.) program in California, and an artist-in-residence at the Mont-Mégantic Observatory in Québec. Bettina Forget’s creative work focuses on space sciences and is inspired by her avid engagement with amateur astronomy. She has exhibited her artwork in the USA, Canada, Germany, Iceland, Singapore, and Nicaragua.
Convergence, Perceptions of Neuroscience is an independent initiative developed in partnership with the Brain Repair and Integrative Neuroscience (BRaIN) Program of the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC), and Concordia University’s Faculty of Fine Arts. Convergence is supported by the Canadian Association for Neuroscience, McGill University, and the Montreal General Hospital Foundation.
