From June 13, 2019 through September 2, 2019 ARTECHOUSE presents the first major retrospective of the work of an award-winning Los-Angeles based Turkish born artist Refik Anadol at its Washington, DC art space.
In taking the data that flows around us as his primary material and the neural network of a computerized mind as his collaborator, Anadol creates radical visualizations of our digitized memories, expanding the possibilities of architecture, narrative, and the body in motion.
“We are trying to find the invisible patterns inside data, basically making the invisible more visible,” Anadol says.
The exhibition will take over ARTECHOUSE galleries featuring Anadol’s infamous immersive installation titled “Infinity Room” seen by some two million people around the world, three infinity boxes, and a selection of multimedia works spanning his variegated career.
“I highly believe that in a world where we are surrounded by technology, by algorithms, by the applications that are deciding where we should go or the things that are giving us a deadline… where machines are tracking our likes, comments, and shares… truly, what does it mean to be a human in the 21st century is one of my deep questions.”
