To mark the closing of “Pictures from the Moon: Artists Holograms 1969–2008,” the New Museum will gather individuals from the fields of technology and art to discuss the history, present condition, and future possibilities of holography. Following a demonstration on how holograms are made, the event will feature a discussion among leading holographers about their own experiences making holograms, the challenges they face in the medium, and what new developments are occurring in holography.
