VISION AND TECHNOLOGY: toward a more just future
Monday, May 14, 9:30am–5:30pm
Presented by the International Center of Photography and Eyebeam, hosted at the Knockdown Center (52-19 Flushing Ave, Maspeth, NY 11378)
VISION AND TECHNOLOGY: toward a more just future, a free day-long symposium, addresses the implications of visuality, representation, and privacy in the age of surveillance and big data. This public symposium convenes artists, technologists, and scholars, to explore the following questions: How do artists and creative technologists respond to, or intervene in, new technologies to create more equitable ways of seeing and sharing information? How does technology facilitate both democratized representation and privacy? How can we build toward just futures for our human and post-human selves?
With an eye to issues of representation in our hypermediated world, this symposium takes an intersectional approach, centering women, LGBTQ+ folks, and people of color in conversations about vision and justice. Participants include micha cárdenas, Morehshin Allahyari, Stephanie Dinkins, Surya Mattu, Chloë Bass, Caroline Woolard, American Artist, Harlo Holmes, Nora Khan, and Salome Asega.
Join us at Eyebeam’s new Bushwick location for Eyebeam Assembly: AFTERCARE, a post-symposium party curated by Topical Cream. AFTERCARE features DJ sets by RAFiA Santana and Hannah Daly, snacks, drinks, rooftop performances, and more!
