Complementing “The Black Box” event, which revealed elements of that amazing structure

enclosed in our skull – our brain, “The White Box” explores the walls which enclose and hold

Montreal’s contemporary art. On Sunday, December 11th, 2016, Convergence neuroscientists are

invited to delve into uncharted territories, receive guided tours of a number of museum and

gallery spaces, and familiarize themselves with some of Montreal foremost contemporary artists

at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal (MAC) and the SBC Gallery of Contemporary Art.

They will also witness an artistic dialogue between the “white” and “black” box in the Visual

Voice Gallery, which melds science and art together in the exhibition space.
