Artist talk by Operator hosted by Metalabel and Artnet, with special guest Erick Calderon (founder, Art Blocks)

Join Operator’s Ania Catherine and Dejha Ti for an in depth and process-focused talk about their recent work in on-chain generative choreography. Drawing from multiple histories, the duo traces the roots of their process to Merce Cunningham’s “chance dance” method, computational choreography, the E.A.T. (Experiments in Art and Technology) movement of the 1960s, as well as various embodied approaches to human-machine collaboration by early women in digital art. As part of their ongoing Privacy Collection exploring the tension between privacy and transparency in blockchain technology, this conceptual generative choreography series will be released in May 2023.

The talk is followed by a conversation between Operator and Erick Calderon (Founder of Art Blocks).

Welcome by Anna Bulbrook (Metalabel) and remarks by Jiayin Chen (Artnet).

Program begins at 12.15 pm. Coffee and light refreshments will be offered.

RSVP required; capacity is limited.
