Move and be moved : The emotional power of movement through art and science

Artists have for long been experimenting with the emotional power of the moving body and the moving image - through video, installations, dance and other performance. But why do certain movements affect us so much? Can certain movements make us feel or think differently about ourselves, others, and the space around us? Can science and art build new ways of transporting us?

Tate Exchange hosts unique collaborations between cognitive scientists and artists, specially designed for this event. Come and actively explore unexpected aspects of your sense of movement, in this series of immersive and interactive installations.

This event is organised by the University of London, in partnership with international neuroscientists and features a special collaboration with Studio Olafur Eliasson around the “Little Sun” project.
