We are delighted to announce the participation of Brandon Lipchik in the group show In Search of the Present, at Espoo Museum of Modern Art, in Helsinki, (FI).
The exhibition takes a profound look at our world, which is defined by technology and its impact on who we are. The pieces in the exhibition explore the relationships between nature, technology, human thought and artificial intelligence.
With works by Refik Anadol, Dora Budor, Sougwen Chung, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Stephanie Dinkins, Teemu Lehmusruusu, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Agnieszka Kurant, Brandon Lipchik, Jaakko Pietiläinen, Sondra Perry, Anna Ridler, Raimo Saarinen, Jenna Sutela, Jakob Kudsk Steensen and Lu Yang.
The exhibition is the second part of EMMA’s series In Search of the Present, which began in 2016. Its title refers to Finnish author Olavi Paavolainen’s collection of essays (1929), which explores the experiences and identities of modern humans in a rapidly changing time. EMMA’s overall theme for 2022 is Crystal Ball. The artists of In Search of the Present examine the essence of our time in a visionary, experimental and bold way.
In Search of the Present is on view from 27 August 2022 to 15 January 2023, at the Espoo Museum of Modern Art – EMMA, in Helsinki, (FI).
