Pierre Huyghe and Humanity in the Age of AI

The de Young Museum
In October 2018 I covered the premiere of Pierre Huyghe’s UUmwelt︎︎︎ at Serpentine Galleries in London for The Brooklyn Rail. Shortly after, The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco invited me to write about Huyghe’s Exomind (Deep Water)︎︎︎, which The M. H. de Young Memorial Museum acquired for its landmark exhibition Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI︎︎︎.

Although independent texts, each essay explores related themes. They can be considered companion pieces.
