Summer of Know: Artificial Intelligence, Simulation, and Esoteric Knowledge and Practices in Art

Artists and Machine Intelligence/Kaoru Okumura: Butoh x DeepDream

Artist Ian Cheng and Kenric McDowell, Artists and Machine Intelligence at Google, discuss the role of artificial intelligence, simulation, and esoteric knowledge and practices in art. Moderated by Troy Conrad Therrien, Curator, Architecture and Digital Initiatives.

The Guggenheim Museum presents a series of conversations that bring together contemporary artists who think deeply about the most urgent social, political, environmental, or legal challenges facing our world today, with individuals who tackle those issues outside of the cultural sphere. Moderated or introduced by Guggenheim curators, these informal discussions invite different perspectives and are premised on the meeting of profound conviction with empirical experience. Summer of Know provides a forum for responding to and engaging with current issues as they are filtered through the generative lens of art.

Free with museum admission.

Conversations take place in Cafe 3, where drinks and food are available. Please note capacity is limited.
