Rosemarie Lopes is an artist/ anthropologist/ art science curator who is particularly interested in neuroscience, and consciousness.

Rosemarie moved to London in 1996 to study at university. Whilst reading European Studies she realised politics wasn't where her heart was. In 2001 she started to paint, and in 2003 she curated her first show. Following a period of globetrotting Maria went back to London, and in 2007 she read for a MSc in Social Anthropology at UCL.

With ‘The Lancet’, UCL sponsored ‘The Brain Unravelled’ at the Slade in 2009. 'The Brain Unravelled' was an art science exhibition that Rosemarie conceptualised, and curated. It brought together some of the greatest minds in art, anthropology, and neuroscience such as Antony Gormley, Prof Chris Knight, and Prof Joshua Sanes. This was where Rosemarie declared 'Cartesian Dualism is Dead: Cogito et Sentio ergo Sum' (I think, and feel therefore I am). Barbara Follett, then Minister of Culture in the UK, opened the show.

In 2013 Rosemarie travelled through Asia, and South America to further expand her mind. Currently in Lisbon.

Born in Lisbon 1977.
