Event description


The Christie's Art+Tech Summit explores the ways in which artificial intelligence is making its impact in the art world, as well as its potential implications for the future. Industry leaders and innovators from Google, M.I.T. Technology Review and the New Museum, among others, will participate in a programme of lectures, talks and panel discussions. The accompanying exhibition will also include the New York premiere of award-winning artist and filmmaker Martha Fiennes’s Yugen, an A.I. driven moving image artwork featuring the actor Salma Hayek Pinault, made possible with generous support by Gucci.

The Summit, held in conjunction with Christie's Education, is presented by Hyundai and supported by Gucci and Google Arts & Culture.
