Art in the Age of Singularity: How Technology is Informing Contemporary Art

As the final component to her 18th Street Art Center Residency, Guest Curator, Yael Lipschutz, will host a panel discussion at LACMA to present the culmination of her research in the theme of Technology in Contemporary Art.
As we consider the possibilities of a post-human future, what might art have to offer technologists in terms of more fully understanding what it means to be human and therefore what it might mean to transcend the human condition? How are issues surrounding social justice, ethics, surveillance, open-source culture, and intellectual property coming into play as we interface with technology? This panel discussion will develop themes of Lipschutz’s current research by exploring how artists are grappling with such questions.
