Virtual Event

Join us for a free virtual screening of the award-winning 2020 documentary Coded Bias, which surveys the fight to ensure that artificial intelligence (AI) systems don't infringe on our civil rights. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Difference Machines: Technology and Identity in Contemporary Art artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, whose works consider the politics of facial recognition technologies, and Squeaky Wheel Curator Ekrem Serdar, who organized the recent exhibition Johann Diedrick: Dark Matters, which explores how AI systems underserve Black communities.


Please register online. Registrants will receive a link to join this virtual event the morning of the program.

About the Exhibition

Difference Machines: Technology and Identity in Contemporary Art brings together a diverse group of seventeen artists and collectives who creatively reimagine the digital tools that shape our lives. The exhibition includes projects that span the last three decades, ranging from software-based and internet art to animated videos, bioart experiments, digital games, and 3-D printed sculptures. Together, these works explore the aesthetic and social potential of emerging technologies.
