Whitney Museum Panel: Histories of the Digital Now
Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011
Organized in conjunction with the Whitney Museum of American Art's exhibition Programmed: Rules, Codes,and Choreographies in Art, 1965–2018 (on view until April 14, 2019), this panel discussion considers histories of technological art that help us to understand our present moment. Artists Jonah Brucker-Cohen, Katherine Moriwaki, and Tamiko Thiel, whose works are on view in the exhibition, and media historian and theorist Erkki Huhtamo explore the evolution of virtual and algorithmic practices, and the role that art can play in our increasingly coded world. The discussion is moderated by Christiane Paul, co-curator of Programmed.
