Could appreciating art have more in common with savouring a cup of coffee than you thought?
Come and experience by yourself the unexpected strategies your brain uses to make and share matters of taste, from the most sensory ones to the art-world. In a series of unique interactive demonstrations and hands-on experiments, specially designed for this programme, discover how you identify elusive or novel objects and select the ones you prefer; understand how you are influenced by others’ preferences and how you communicate your own. Come and discuss with researchers who will unveil what is going on in their laboratories, and by sharing your experience, contribute to advancing their ideas, and to developing new ways to make art and taste more engaging for everyone.
