Porto Exhibition

January 13, 2010 § Leave a comment

A portion of my Emotionally}Vague project is currently on show in Porto until the end of March. The Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology, in collaboration with the Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis, exhibits on the theme of Darwinism and emotions. There’s an interestingly wide ranging mix of antique and contemporary work, with floating brains and neuroscans included. I’m dead chuffed that E}V is making an appearance at such a large scale in an elegant venue. Alas, I couldn’t be there for the artwork installation or opening night. One must let go… If anyone does pop along, let me know what you think.
