Moving_Image_00:01 / MFA Students SAIC Screening

Somatic Markings: Video Art by Current School of the Art Institute of Chicago MFA students
Curated by Santina Amato & Michelle Marie Murphy

Current Photography Graduate students, Santina Amato & Michelle Murphy, programmed these video works together as the result of a common theme that eventuated through a graduate open call at SAIC. The body, a source of inspiration for artists throughout history, continues to inspire this generation of cultural producers. These artists in Somatic Markings go beyond the historical representation of body, to include feelings associated with emotions and physical responses, defined by neuroscientist Antonio Demasio as “somatic markers”.
