Artist Lecture and Opening Celebration: Agnieszka Kurant
Join us for the dedication of our latest addition to MIT’s Public Art Collection, The End of Signature by Agnieszka Kurant.
Hear from the artist about her process of using artificial intelligence to create two different collective signatures realized as monumental light sculptures adorning the facades of two new buildings in Kendall Square.
This will be a hybrid event with a live video that will be available the day of the event.
Following the lecture, we invite you to join us on the plaza beneath the artworks for a reception and celebration from 7:00–8:00PM.
About the Artist
Agnieszka Kurant’s work in systems, sculpture, and film has been exhibited widely in the U.S. and Europe. She operates at the intersection of art, science, philosophy and technology, and questions the epistemological assumptions that are fundamental to those intellectual and institutional territories. This piece is a site-specific work for two new buildings in Kendall Square including new residential housing and innovation center (Buildings E37 and E38).
