On the Origin of Art
We need art. But for what?
David Walsh asked some of his scientist buddies this question. The result? Four answers. Four exhibitions. One man’s crusade to piss off art academics.
Published on the occasion of Mona’s biggest exhibition yet, this catalogue features essays from guest curators Steven Pinker, Mark Changizi, Geoffrey Miller and Brian Boyd, as well as artwork plates for the many artists featured in the show, including Yayoi Kusama, Brett Whiteley, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Bill Henson, among many others. And glow-in-the-dark ink.
