What does it feel like to have your face registered as a data point? To be seen or evaluated by a computer? While artificial intelligence has become a pervasive technology in our daily lives, it often goes unnoticed.

Join us for a an evening with the creators of Face Values, an exhibition that explores the power and limits of A.I., provoking us to think more critically about how facial data has been and continues to be interpreted.

Artists and designers Luke Dubois, Zach Lieberman, and Jessica Helfand will discuss their work within the larger context of A.I. development and the phenomenon facial recognition. They will then participate in a panel discussion moderated by Ellen Lupton, curator of Face Values and Senior Curator of Contemporary Design at Cooper Hewitt.

Doors Open at 6:30 p.m.

Presentations + Panel Discussion from 7:00 p.m. – 800 p.m.
