Last night was the opening of F.AT. GOLD, a retrospective of the five years of projects (and plenty of new ones too) we’ve all made together! Residency continues through this week at Eyebeam, check out the schedule of events and come play! Show runs through April 20.

“Release early, often and with rap music. This is Notorious R&D.” —F.A.T. Lab 

Celebrating more than five years of thug life, pop culture, and R&D, the renegade art organization known as the Free Art & Technology Lab, or F.A.T. Lab, is going GOLD. F.A.T. GOLD, that is. From April 1–20 Eyebeam Art & Technology Center will present the acclaimed work of F.A.T. Lab. Organized by Lindsay Howard, Eyebeam Curatorial Fellow, the exhibition invites the public to experience and engage with the collective’s groundbreaking projects.

F.A.T. GOLD brings together an international group of twenty-five collaborators comprised of artists, hackers, engineers, musicians, and graffiti writers, many of whom have been involved with the organization as residents, fellows, or collaborators, for a week-long residency at Eyebeam. The influential group—who’ve collectively and independently received prestigious honors such as the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award, Japan Media Arts Award, Transmediale Award, Prix Ars Electronica, Emmy Award, and TIME Magazine’s “World’s Most Influential Person”—will be onsite daily during the week of April 1, participating in panels, hackathons, and collaborative pieces.

The exhibition will feature significant works from 2007 to the present, including new projects to be launched on opening night. Showcasing a comprehensive and critical selection of the group’s diverse output, the exhibition includes video, software, net art, installation, and performance. F.A.T. Lab members will also be working and hacking on new cutting-edge projects to be added to the exhibition on the fly.

Oh and Matt Richardson made a vlog about the show!


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
