Dept. of Art Visiting Speaker Series: Burak Arikan
December 4, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Department of Art regularly invites artists, critics, historians and designers to participate in the Visiting Artist Speaker Series, classroom lectures and critiques. The Speaker Series happens every fall semester and is free to the public.
Burak Arikan is a New York-based artist who explores emerging political economies of data, decentralized infrastructures, and blockchain technology. He investigates societal issues and develops his findings into abstract machinery, which generates network maps and algorithmic interfaces, results in performances, and procreates predictions to render inherent power relationships visible and discussable. Arikan’s software, prints, installations, and performances have been featured in numerous exhibitions internationally; he is also the founder of Graph Commons, a collaborative platform for mapping, analyzing, and publishing data networks.
