What if the future is dictated by the unintended consequences of who you are?   That is the question set out to be answered in ‘Age of You’, an exhibition now on display at Jameel Arts Centre in Dubai.

Curated by Shumon Basar, Douglas Coupland and Hans Ulrich Obrist, with graphic design by Daly & Lyon, it includes over 70 visual contributors from the worlds of art, design, filmmaking, photography, technology and electronic music. 

The new exhibit was profiled on CNN’s Connect The World programme, hosted by Becky Anderson.

Set across two of Jameel Art Centre’s gallery floors, ‘Age of You’ contains major works articulating different aspects of “The Extreme Self.” New commissions by Satoshi Fujiwara, Stéphanie Saadé and Yuri Pattison, deal, respectively, with crowds, screens and emoji-as-surveillance. Films by Trevor Paglen and NVIDIA Research, and audio-deepfakes by Vocal Synthesis, are informed by Artificial Intelligence. Sara Cwynar, Jenna Sutela and Victoria Sin all explore transformed perceptions of the face and body. And Craig Green‘s collection and campaign for Moncler fuses menswear and machine.
