If you are in South End, try to pop by Laconia Gallery for an interesting show called “MINDmatters, Mechanisms and Mysteries of the Mind".

According to the Gallery press release, “This exhibition may show how science affects human experience and artistic expression. In this exhibition by 8 artists working in several disciplines there is new emphasis on brain mapping, identity stabilization, integration of self, and healing. Several of the participating artists have had intimate contact with dementia, brain surgery, and bi-polar disorder. Notably absent are reflections on Freud, dreams, sex or violence. Lingering references to visions, parapsychology, and spiritual disciplines (so pervasive in the 80’s) share space with the new imagery inspired by neuroscience.”

Better hurry though, it ends on June 28th, 2008.
