Refik Anadol: Unsupervised

November 19, 2022 – March 05, 2023

The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art announces a special project for the winter season, Refik Anadol: Unsupervised. This major installation will feature three new digital artworks by Refik Anadol that use artificial intelligence to interpret and transform more than 200 years of art from MoMA’s collection. Refik Anadol: Unsupervised will continuously generate new forms on a large-scale media wall measuring approximately 24 × 24 feet in the Museum’s ground-floor Gund Lobby. Known for his groundbreaking digital artworks and public installations, Anadol has created a singular and unprecedented meditation on technology, creativity, and modern art.

Organized by Michelle Kuo, The Marlene Hess Curator of Painting and Sculpture, and Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator, Department of Architecture and Design and Director, Research and Development, with Lydia Mullin, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Painting and Sculpture.

The project is made possible by Hyundai Card.

Leadership support is provided by 1of1.

AI software and computing systems to create this work provided by NVIDIA.
