to Jun 10 | ART EXHIBIT | The Brain – wider than the sky | Praça da Espanha | 5€
You don’t need to be Emily Dickinson and/or a perpetrator of the zombie apocalypse to know that the brain is pretty cool.
The Gulbenkian‘s new exhibition, Cérebro – mais vasto que o céu (“The Brain – wider than the sky”), features a 500 million-year-old brain, a modern brain, a giant interactive synapse, fragments of an Egyptian papyrus, a picture of the artist Bridget Riley, a brain orchestra, robots, interactive activities, historical and paleontological documents, three-dimensional models, infographics, and all sorts of food for thought.
The organizers say:
“The show also intends to build the necessary bridge between us and animals – so we can understand our place in nature. It is this permanent relationship that, throughout the exhibition, allows the visitor to construct a narrative that extends from the natural and social sciences to Philosophy, Arts, and Humanities.”
In short, it’s sure to have you using your noodle, no matter your age.
16 Mar – 10 Jun, 2019.
10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Closed on Tuesdays.
