Ani Liu is a research-based artist working at the intersection of art & technoscience. Through her work with emerging technologies, Ani examines the biopolitics of reproduction, labor, care work and motherhood.

Liu’s project A.I. Toys, which explores the role of emergent technologies and how they shape our perceptions of “play,” is featured in Gallery 360’s current exhibition At Play. On Thursday, March 23rd, Ani will be in conversation with curator and design historian Michelle Millar Fisher in West Village F, followed by a post-keynote reception in Gallery 360, located on the first floor of Curry Student Center. They will discuss the role of A.I. in developing this project, her research-based artistic practice, and the future of teaching the next generation of designers and thinkers with emergent technologies.
