PANEL | Into the Wild: Designing AIs in Retrograde

08.20 | 11:00 am_12:00 pm

Adam Basanta lives and works in Montréal since 2010. Originally studying contemporary music composition, he has developed a broad, experimental, autodidactic artistic practice in mixed-media installations. Across various media and techniques, he investigates technology as a meeting point of concurrent, overlapping systems; a nexus of cultural, computational, biological, and economic forces.
Since 2015, his works have been exhibited worldwide including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (CAN), WRO Biennale (POL), Fotomuseum Winterthur (CH), Cité internationale des arts (FRA), Arsenal Art Contemporain (CAN), Galerie Charlot (FRA), iMAL (BEL), National Art Centre Tokyo (JPN), V Moscow Biennale for Young Art (RUS), Serralves Museum (POR), Edith-Russ-Haus fur Mediakunst (GER), York Art Gallery (UK), and The Center for Contemporary Arts Santa Fe (USA).
His work has been awarded in Canada (Prix Pierre Ayot 2019, Sobey Art Award Longlist 2018 and 2020) and internationally (Japan Media Arts Prize 2016, Aesthetica Art Prize 2017), and can be found in private and institutional collections.
