Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age at MoMA

Drawn largely from The Museum of Modern Art’s collection, Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age brings works produced using computers and computational thinking together with examples of computer and
component design. On view from November 13, 2017, through April 8, 2018, the exhibition reveals how artists, architects, and designers operating at the vanguard of art and technology between 1959 and 1989 deployed computing as a means to reconsider artistic, industrial, and economic production. The individuals featured in the exhibition exploited the potential of unprecedented technologies by inventing systems wholesale or by partnering with institutions and corporations that provided access to unique machines.
