Announcing the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies at PNCA 2021 Symposium: Speculative Futures

November 19, 2021 - November 20, 2021

The words "Speculative Futures" fizzle and disintegrate against an ominous, digital void, above the subtitle "Art, AI, and Digital Worldmaking" and other event information.

This symposium will consider how contemporary artists render algorithmic harms visible, and imagine speculative futures optimized for just outcomes. The two-day event will facilitate conversations on the ethical, environmental, political, social, and economic impacts of artificial intelligence and machine learning for artists, designers, makers, writers, researchers, and cultural workers.

Featuring the work of Amelia Winger-Bearskin, an artist who innovates with technology to make a positive impact on her community and the environment, and Mashinka Firunts Hakopian, a scholar and curator exploring the intersections of algorithmic justice and visual art, Speculative Futures explores how artificial intelligence shapes political imaginaries of what is yet to come.
