From November 22, 2018 to March 3, 2019, FACT, Liverpool premieres Broken Symmetries, a new, international exhibition of artworks exploring the links between art and science, and how both can help to reveal hidden elements of our world.
Broken Symmetries is comprised of artworks which rethink scientific facts—challenging our notions of reality and how we arrive at something as "certain."

Location: The New School: The Auditorium, 66 West 12th Street
Organized in conjunction with the Whitney Museum of American Art's exhibition Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art, 1965–2018, this panel discussion considers histories of technological art that help us to understand our present moment. Artists Jonah Brucker-Cohen, Katherine Moriwaki, and Tamiko Thiel, whose works are on view in the exhibition, and media historian and theorist Erkki Huhtamo explore the evolution of virtual and algorithmic practices, and the role that art can play in our increasingly coded world. The discussion is moderated by Christiane Paul, Adjunct Curator of Digital Art and co-curator of Programmed.
