Open Call for Futuretech Art – #VirtualReality, Surveillance, Machine Learning, A.I. & More

Flux Factory in Queens, NYC have announced an open call for artistic submissions for an upcoming exhibition titled ‘We Have Always Lived in the Future’ (described below).

I’ve personally always appreciated artists who dabble in making and makers who dabble in artistic expression – somewhere in the middle is the sweet spot for contemporary life.

If you’re interested in either exhibiting or talking on a range of topics you can find more details here – applications are due February 15th.

Flux Factory invites artists, performers, and researchers to submit work for our upcoming exhibition We Have Always Lived in the Future. This exhibition examines the presence of marginalized groups within the global Silicon Valley and its prevailing visions of future technologies. We are looking for works that address these representations——or lack thereof——in areas including but not limited to: accessibility, virtual reality, surveillance, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.

As part of the exhibition, we will host a series called Silicon Flux where we will have a panel discussion for each of the following topics as it relates to the exhibition’s theme: disability and accessibility, virtual reality, wearables, and environment. Proposals for additional topics are welcome.

Submission guidelines and panel discussion requirements can be found on the open call here.
