From February 26, 2020 until April 20, 2020
In the framework of “Mutations/Creations”, the exhibition devoted to Jeremy Shaw presents an original and immersive project dabbling in science fiction and alternative cultures. Shaw’s undertaking lies at the crossroads of several contemporary issues which touch on philosophy, anthropology, sociology, science and more particularly cognitive and neuroscience, not to mention the latest technological advances such as bionanotechnologies. His work is a visual and sound representation of these multiple developments in research, taken to a fictional dimension which flirts with science fiction and alternative cultures.
With “Mutations/Creations” the Centre Pompidou becomes a laboratory for creation and innovation at the frontiers of art, science and engineering. Each year, the programme brings together artists, engineers and scientists. For its fourth edition, “Mutations/Creations” pursues its prospective research through two exhibitions. “Neurons, simulated intelligence” associates technical progress and artistic representation around artificial intelligence. “Jeremy Shaw” presents a unique immersive project, which flirts with science-fiction and alternative cultures.
