Ian Cheng Opening Reception and Gallery Talk

Forum Gallery

Free Event

Join artist Ian Cheng and curator Eric Crosby to celebrate the opening of Ian Cheng in CMOA's Forum Gallery.

For his solo exhibition at CMOA, Ian Cheng (b. 1984) presents Emissary Sunsets The Self, an open-ended digital simulation displayed on a massive, 13-foot LED screen. Cheng's digital simulation artworks draw on his background in cognitive science and employ rudimentary forms of artificial intelligence (AI).

This in-gallery conversation with the artist and cocktail reception is free and open to the public, with a cash bar. Stay afterward for Third Thursday, CMOA's monthly evening event, for $5.
