Rhizome and the New Museum present Seven on Seven, the flagship art-meets-tech event that pairs seven leading artists with seven visionary technologists and asks them to “make something”: an artwork, a prototype, a provocation—whatever they imagine. What they create in their short time together premieres at the conference, yet its effects ripple beyond that day.
Founded by Rhizome in 2010, Seven on Seven forefronts the leading issues at the intersection of culture and technology, and animates them through its novel format. The tenth edition takes place in a moment of broad public disillusionment with digital platforms and their impact on interpersonal communication and media culture. Against this backdrop, the collaborators rethink ways of communicating and organizing through technology, looking to evolving disciplines such as machine intelligence and blockchain governance while revisiting fundamental principles of digital culture.
