The 16th international art-sci juried exhibition
organized by Art & Science Collaborations,
will be held at the New York Hall of Science
from October 11, 2014 - March 29, 2015
Sunday, Oct.26, 3-5pm
New York, NY
Art+Science Co-Jurors selected 27 artists and two neuroscientists from the 156 entrants from around the world [42 images].
We have entered the era of "Big Neuroscience." The goal of the United States' Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) initiative is to map the activity of every neuron in the human brain, and the mission of the European Union's Human Brain Project (HBP) is to construct realistic simulations of the human brain. They are the biggest scientific challenges of the 21st century.
Propelled by MRI and fMRI imaging technologies, scientists are already discovering fundamental mechanisms of brain function that will ultimately create a more complete understanding of what it means to be human. These "heady" times for neuroscience are also having a domino effect in the arts. Artists have long reflected upon the nature of perception, memory, and emotion to create their work. But recent breakthroughs in understanding the brain, accompanied by its visualizations, are sparking the imaginations of artists around the world. And recently, a young neuroscientist who was so enamored with the beauty of the brain's neurons and synapses has created a successful career in the arts as a painter!
Separately, and often in collaboration with neuroscientists, artists are using abstract thinking, imagination, and visual perception to respond to new discoveries in brain science. Sometimes, they are spurred by neural maladies that have touched them personally, such as color blindness and dyslexia, or the more serious impacts of brain damage from injury, epilepsy, Alzheimers, autism, and schizophrenia, among others.
A new openness from science practitioners and a desire for public engagement with their research findings, has created a plethora of recent art+neuroscience activities including: the new scientific field of Neuroaesthetics; "The Beautiful Brain: Art and Science of the Human Mind" online forum; The Interalia Magazine dedicated to the interactions between the arts, sciences, and consciousness; "Neuroscience Art" exhibitions mounted at The Society of Neuroscience annual meetings; and a 2014 production of a planetarium journey, the NEURODOME, that utilizes the data visualization tools of astronomy to depict high-resolution imagery of the brain.
This juried exhibition is the result of Art & Science Collaborations' international Open Call for stunning visual images documenting original art executed in any media that was inspired or informed by the various aspects of the brain and new discoveries in neuroscience.

" Paesaggio nel tempo sospeso"
18 April – 15 June 2014
Di Paolo Art Gallery during the month of May will host in their spaces " Paesaggio nel tempo sospeso " group exhibition with works by Franco Tosi , Romano Bertuzzi and Franco Passalacqua . What unites the authors is the careful study of the landscape. Working on the landscape means working on the territory of what surrounds us , then something real that exists , it is visible , you can touch . But working on the landscape also means working on yourself , on the perception that one has of the world, the atmosphere of which we are part . Here then at the same time the landscape is imagined because everyone is allowed to see according to its own vision , sensitivity, culture. Tosi and Passalacqua fantasize about creating unreal landscapes , dreamy ; Roman Bertuzzi simply rereads the territory through the personal memories or historical memory . Each according to their language investigates this in the relationship between man and nature, between the self and the outside world inside.
Franco Tosi as been selected as a Winner in the 2nd 2014 Showcase competition!
The ArtSlant Curatorial Team is very pleased to welcome him into our special group of winning artists. Showcase Winners have been designated as promising artists by our team of professional art watchers.

18 January to 20 February 2014
On January 18, 2014 at 18:00 hours at the Di Paolo Art Gallery of Bologna opens the exhibition " Synaesthesis " of the Bolognese artist Franco Tosi curated by Ivan Quaroni . The Tosi research revolves around the retelling of anatomical details in their microscopic size . The figure dissolves gradually losing every amenability to what is to become an introspective fragments of ourselves. Cells and filaments materialize on fluid interior landscapes giving us the perception of our being. Synaesthesis reveals this parallel between illusion and reality, where abstraction and figuration alternate on the canvas and in the sensitivity of the beholder. Until February 20 are on display in the gallery ( tel. 051-225413 ) a series of works of recent construction .

December 13 to January 10 - 2014
Friday, December 13, 2013, at 17.00, at Banca Mediolanum Via Saraceno 18/24 in Ferrara, opens the exhibition "Fragili Orizzonti " of the artist Franco Tosi. The curator Gianluca Ramini selected for the exhibition a series of works that they want to represent the three different and simultaneous moments in the artist's production. A simple representation, limited to a few but suggestive pieces in which the horizons are marked from the borders of our being. Boundaries disregarded in a fragile balance between what we are and who we might be chasing hard but possible horizons. The exhibition will remain open until January 10 in the opening hours of the Bank.
