Join us for a presentation by Dr. Margaret Rhee and Dr. Cody Mejuer about the work of the University at Buffalo–based Palah 파랗 Light Lab, a collective of transdisciplinary artists and scholars who explore the intersection of social justice and technology. They will be joined by Difference Machines: Technology and Identity in Contemporary Art co-curators Paul Vanouse and Tina Rivers Ryan to discuss common themes between the Lab's work and the exhibition, and how we can use art and technology to advance social justice locally.

About the Exhibition
Difference Machines: Technology and Identity in Contemporary Art brings together a diverse group of seventeen artists and collectives who creatively reimagine the digital tools that shape our lives. The exhibition includes projects that span the last three decades, ranging from software-based and internet art to animated videos, bioart experiments, digital games, and 3-D printed sculptures. Together, these works explore the aesthetic and social potential of emerging technologies.
