Discover how emotions, art, and decision making intertwine at the ‘The Art of Decision Making’ exhibition.

Have you ever wondered how people value art? What makes a piece of art worth more than another? We invite you to come and explore 'The Art of Decision Making' exhibition that delves into the fascinating world of aesthetic emotions and art valuation.

As you walk through the exhibit, you can engage with the set of art pieces by rating their emotional impact on you and sharing your valuations via our online questionnaire. (The artworks are not distressing or offensive in any way.)

You'll also have a chance to learn about recent findings from the ARU Behavioural Insights Lab which, as part of its research on decision making, studied the intricate relationship between aesthetic emotions and art valuation.

So, come and join us to experience ‘The Art of Decision Making’ exhibition and spark conversations about the value we place on art.

This exhibition will be taking place at Shire Hall in Chelmsford on 19-22 October, from 11am-4pm.

No booking required – just drop in.
