Encoding Futures: Critical Imaginaries of AI
Encoding Futures: Critical Imaginaries of AI assembles the work of artists who visualize the limits of our current algorithmic imaginaries, and envision speculative futures engineered for just outcomes.
Exhibiting artists include:
Algorithmic Justice League, Kate Crawford and Vladan Joler, Stephanie Dinkins, Aroussiak Gabrielian, Maya Ganesh, Kite, Lauren Lee McCarthy, Caroline Sinders, Astria Suparak, and Mandy Harris Williams.
The exhibition is staged in conjunction with Encoding Futures: Speculative Monuments for LA, a 3-month virtual residency program at Oxy Arts. Over the residency period, artists Nancy Baker-Cahill, Audrey Chan, Joel Garcia with Meztli Projects and Patrick Martinez researched and developed original virtual monuments to be geo-located at sites across Los Angeles. The monuments will be accessible for the public to view through the 4th Wall app. The prompt for the residency was to conceive a blueprint for a site-specific imagined future, and consider technologically enabled transformations that might shape the future of the chosen site. The artists considered past and present social, economic, and cultural inequities, power imbalances, and other forms of subjection, with the hope of foregrounding a radically equitable future sited in an emergent present.
Encoding Futures is co-curated by Oxy Arts and Mashinka Firunts Hakopian, Mellon Professor of the Practice at Occidental College.
