ARTIS Research Presentations at VSAC 2022

ARTIS members participated as symposium moderators and presenters at the Visual Science of Art Conference (Amsterdam), which took place online from the 24st until the 27st of August 2022.

“Chills, awe, satisfaction or even a changing worldview – artwork can provoke strong reactions. In a recent EU project, Matthew Pelowski from the University of Vienna conducts empirical experiments in several European museums. His goal: Shedding light on the psychological aspects of our fascination with art.”

Our Austrian ARTIS members (Matthew Pelowski) recently gave an interview to the University of Vienna media portal on the topic of “Investigating Art Experience” and showcasing some of the new studies to come out of the ARTIS program. For more info on how we have been trying to conduct studies of art experiences in the wild while following Covid protocols and if even short encounters with online art can make us feel less lonely, anxious, and improve our mood, find the full interview here:
