Make Art with AARON and CENTO

Sun, Mar 10, 2024
11 am–3 pm

Floor 3, Hess Theater and Hearst Artspace

For all ages

Artists of all ages are invited to participate in artmaking activities inspired by Harold Cohen: AARON and Nancy Baker Cahill: CENTO. Cohen saw his work with AARON, the earliest artificial intelligence (AI) program for artmaking, as a collaboration. Create your own drawings inspired by AARON and prompts developed collaboratively with other participants! 

Baker Cahill’s CENTO takes its name from the term for a collage poem—a poem composed of lines from other poets’ works—alluding both to the collaged body of the creature and the audience’s contributions to the work. Participants will make their own futuristic creatures by playing the Surrealist drawing game, exquisite corpse. 

Visitors are also invited to participate in artmaking with a Whitney educator in the Museum’s collection galleries. 

The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
