On “Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989” at @MuseumModernArt | #retrocomputing

ScienceandFilm.org’s Sonia Shechet Epstein has a write-up about the exhibit Thinking Machines currently on view at NYC’s MoMA:

Artists used computers in a variety of ways that reflects changing computer technologies–which went from room size to lap size–in the three decades that followed World War II. The Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition “Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959-1989,” curated primarily from the Museum’s collection, includes computing elements such as IBM punch cards and computer chips, desktop computers, as well as video and two-dimensional works of art. The video works on display are by Stan VanDerBeek, Charles Csuri, and Beryl Korot.

Thinking Machines” is on view at MoMA through April 8, 2018. Works on view include those by John Cage, Richard Hamilton, Alison Knowles, IBM, Olivetti, and Apple. An exhibition about Beryl Korot’s publication Radical Software, called “The Raindance Foundation, Media Ecology and Video Art,” is currently on view at the ZKM in Germany through January 28, 2018. Stay tuned to Science & Film for more on the ZKM exhibition.
