About the event

How do state-of-the art technologies augment the artist's imagination in the 21st century? From algorithmic computation, to robotic drawing and rapid-prototype sculpture, are Romantic notions of the artist and aesthetics being put aside or are they more robust than ever?

Suzanne Anker (Chair, BFA Fine Arts, School of Visual Arts), co-author of The Molecular Gaze: Art in the Genetic Age, visual artist and theoretician working with genetic imagery, will be joined in discussion by moderator Adrienne Klein (Science & the Arts, The Graduate Center, CUNY).
