MIT List Visual Arts Center | Public Program | Graduate Student Talk | Getting Goosebumps: Sensations Across Species

Take a look at the List Centers exhibitions from a new perspective. Join Emily Watlington (History, Theory and Criticism of Architecture and Art, MIT) to discover more about An Inventory of Shimmers: Objects of Intimacy in Contemporary Art. Watlingtons talk will focus on a series of works in the exhibition by Anicka Yi, in which the artist cast ostrich skins in silicone. Yis representation of goosebumps reflects a way to visualise affect a pre-cognitive or involuntary response to something which has affected you.
