This panel discussion reflects on the legacy of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), the influential, genre-defying program founded by Bell Labs engineers Billy Klüver and Fred Waldhauer and artists Robert Rauschenberg and Robert Whitman. Originally formed in 1967, E.A.T. pioneered cutting-edge collaborations between scientists and contemporary artists including legendary figures such as John Cage, Lucinda Childs, Marta Minujín, and Stan VanDerBeek, among many others.
Recently relaunched by Nokia-Bell Labs, the program resulted in a series of collaborations with the New Museum, culminating in the recent major commission “Ed Atkins: Get Life/Love’s Work,” now on view at the New Museum.
Join curator and director of Acute Art Daniel Birnbaum; former Head of E.A.T. at Nokia-Bell Labs, Domhnaill Hernon; co-founder of E.A.T., Julie Martin; and artist Philippe Parreno for a conversation moderated by Massimiliano Gioni, Edlis Neeson Artistic Director of the New Museum. Panelists will examine the history of E.A.T. programs and discuss how its creative and critical approaches can inform contemporary debates around art and technology.
