Art as Research

What is art as research? How does making become a method of inquiry for exploring questions in science, technology, culture, and reality? Ani Liu talks about her practice, with works in media ranging from microbiology, artificial intelligence and robotics. Through the work, she explores themes in motherhood, identity, labor and the body in a technologically mediated world.


Ani Liu is an internationally exhibiting research-based artist working at the intersection of art & science. Ani’s work examines gender politics, labor, reproduction, simulation and sexuality. Integrating emerging technologies with cultural reflection and social change, Ani’s most recent work examines the biopolitics of care work and motherhood. Ani’s work has been exhibited internationally, at the Venice Biennale, Ars Electronica, Kunstmuseum, the Queens Museum, MIT Museum. Ani’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Art in America, National Geographic, VICE, Mashable, Gizmodo, TED, PBS, the Brooklyn Rail, Hyperallergic and WIRED. She is currently an Associate Professor of Practice at the University of Pennsylvania.

This event is open to the public and will be recorded.
We will post a recording of the Zoom on Vimeo in November.
