The technology was trialled by members of the public for the first time this week at the Courtauld Gallery in London. Those taking part viewed works in the gallery’s stunning collection, including by Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet and Paul Cézanne, while connected to an electroencephalogram (EEG) monitor. The outputs of the brainwaves were visualised in real time on-screen in 3D. The technology is set to tour select museums across the UK in 2024.

This year’s Earth Day comes against a stark backdrop. Last year was the warmest on record, and a recent UN climate report recently warned that it’s “now or never to limit global warming.”

Inhotim, the idyllic art gallery in the heart of Brazil’s mining country

A small mining town in rural Brazil might seem an unlikely place for Latin America’s largest open-air museum. Yet, that is where art buffs and curious tourists will find the Instituto Inhotim, a contemporary-art-gallery-cum-botanical-garden nestled among mining-scarred mountains some 60 kilometers outside of Belo Horizonte, the state capital of Minas Gerais. 

Everything about Inhotim feels extravagant. Three days can seem insufficient to take in everything the place has to offer. The art is set within a verdant 140-hectare park, where over 4,300 species of plants from all over the world grow among the local Cerrado and Atlantic Forest biomes. Nearly 600 pieces of contemporary art are on display, some inside the 24 pavilions — many of which are works of art in themselves — others outside, in a carefully thought-out symbiosis with the surrounding environment.
