Ian Cheng: Emissaries

(Sunday) (Monday)

Exhibition. April 9–September 25, 2017. MoMA PS1 will present Ian Cheng’s (b. 1984) first U.S. museum solo presentation, featuring the artist’s complete Emissary trilogy (2015-2017), a series of three live simulation video works dedicated to the history of cognitive evolution. These works ask us to imagine technology not as a subordinate reflection of our own minds, but as a tool to model a non-anthropomorphic vision of history and consciousness. Using an engine for developing video games, Emissary is made up of open-ended animations with no fixed outcome or narrative—a format Cheng calls live simulation. The trilogy was recently acquired by The Museum of Modern Art. Caption: The Museum of Modern Art, designed by Yoshio Taniguchi. Entrance at 53rd Street. Photo © 2011 Timothy Hursley
