Everything that we are is a culmination of our life experiences, as processed by our neurons – the “thinking cells” of the brain. However, this mysterious, complex part of our biology has remained widely misunderstood by the general public, until now. ARTECHOUSE, in collaboration with the Society for Neuroscience, will bring art, science and technology together through its upcoming Life of a Neuron exhibition to give audiences of all ages an unprecedented view inside one of science’s greatest mysteries: the human brain.
ARTECHOUSE will kick off the 2022 season at its New York City location with a brand new commission titled TRUST,in partnership with acclaimed Italian studio fuse*.
Open to the public from January 31 to May 30, 2022, TRUST is a unique data-driven immersive exhibition that explores and interprets the multiple meanings and implications of the concept of trust, generating distinctive real-time data experiences throughout the run of the exhibition. On a broad level, through data examination it observes how historical events have influenced trust and considers how this can evolve in the future. More specifically, it further uses the data points to examine how the presence or absence of trust can shift the perception of our individual realities.
ARTECHOUSE, the first innovative arts organization dedicated to the intersection of art, science and technology, with locations in Washington, DC, New York City and Miami, announces the return of Machine Hallucination: NYC, the groundbreaking immersive exhibition in collaboration with award-winning media artist and pioneer in the aesthetics of machine intelligence Refik Anadol.

The NFTs (non-fungible tokens) will launch on November 1st during NFT.NYC, the leading annual non-fungible token event, and run for two months for the duration of this limited-time exhibition. Open to all ages, Machine Hallucination: NYC opens to the public on November 2, 2021 and will run through January 2, 2022 at ARTECHOUSE NYC, located in Chelsea Market at 439 West 15th Street.
Chelsea Market will host the photography exhibition “The Streets of Chelsea” beginning September 9 from photographer and Chelsea local Leslie Fratkin. “The Streets of Chelsea” is both a documentation of the continuously evolving neighborhood captured during the COVID-19 pandemic and a series of portraits of Fratkin’s Chelsea neighbors. The collection, made up of 37 black-and-white images, reflect Fratkin’s drive to seek out people and places that are not posed or arranged. She welcomes the challenge of not being able to control all the variables and seeing what an element of chance brings to the final image.
