On the Origin of Art

Mona from 5th November 2016

A new Mona exhibition, opening on 5th November, explores the biology behind why we make art.  

On the Origin of Art is a new major exhibition that has invited four world-renowned scientists and evolutionary theorists to explore the universal human drivers behind why we make art. 

The exhibition focuses on a central question: is art adaptive? In other words, has art helped humans to survive and to procreate in some way? Has the tendency to make and appreciate art been handed down, generation by generation, through evolutionary time?
