Indra and Harry Banga Gallery 18/F, Lau Ming Wai Academic Building, City University of Hong Kong Tat Chee Avenue, Kowloon Tong, Hong Kong
Free Event

“Art Machines: Past · Present,” co-curated by Profs Richard Allen and Jeffrey Shaw from the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong, explores the long-standing connection between art-making and machines. Starting with aesthetic modernism in art and film and tracking the emergence of cybernetic art in the post-war period, the exhibition provides a context for understanding new media art within this tradition of artmaking through and with machines, exploring the diverse facets of this relationship: robotic art; sound art; computational art, machine learning art, etc.

Using these categories, the curators have selected works from such contemporary Hong Kong artists as Samson Young, Kingsley Ng, Carla Chan, Max Hattler, Tamas Waliczky, Tobias Klein, Miu Ling Lam, Hector Rodriguez, Bryan Chung and Vvzela Kook, to name a few. The range and breadth of artistic production connects back to earlier art machines, while also taking the public forward into an unknown, often imaginary future.
