Sundaram Tagore Gallery, 547 West 27th Street

Press Release

What is an artist and how do we experience art? Curator, writer and gallery artist Fré Ilgen explores history and various fields of science to find out why humans need art. He will discuss his book ARTIST? The Hypothesis of Bodiness and sign copies.

ARTIST? offers familiar, surprising and revolutionary insights in the complex self of the artist and the experience offered by works of art, arguing that the biological processes involved in creating and in encountering artwork play a more important role than has until now been acknowledged.

ARTIST? The Hypothesis of Bodiness is a hardcover, full-color, 300-book published by Wasmuth GmbH, Germany.

Kindly RSVP rsvpny@sundaramtagore.com.
