Rhizome Announces 2019 Seven on Seven Participants

NEW YORK—Rhizome announced today the collaborators taking part in the 2019 edition of Seven on Seven, an art and technology platform it founded in 2010. The annual event pairs seven artists with seven technologists and asks them to “make something.” On Saturday, April 27, their projects will be unveiled at a conference held at the New Museum in New York.

Co-organized by Rhizome’s artistic director, Michael Connor; executive director, Zachary Kaplan; and assistant curator of net art, Aria Dean; this year’s Seven on Seven will explore a diverse array of topics ranging from artificial intelligence and the school-to-prison pipeline to how insects and robotics can echo one another.

“Seven on Seven endures because its distinctive format provokes deep engagement with the art and tech ideas of our moment among both fields’ leaders,” said Kaplan. “This year’s cohort will engage many fields previously unexplored in this flagship program—we can’t wait to see what they create.”

Participants in Seven on Seven include:

Artist Rachel Rose and Kirstin Petersen, founder of the Collective Embodied Intelligence Lab at Cornell University

Artist Matthew Angelo Harrison and Trevor McFedries, cofounder of Brud

Artist Sarah Meyohas and Tarun Chitra, founder of Gauntlet

Artist Hayal Pozanti and linguist Laura Welcher of the Long Now Foundation

Artist American Artist and Rashida Richardson, director of policy research at AI Now

Artist Artie Vierkant and developer and activist James La Marre

Artist Qiu Zhijie and He Xiaodong, deputy managing director at JD AI

Tickets to the event are $99. A simulcast presentation of Seven on Seven will also be presented in the New Museum’s Sky Room for free for museum visitors.
