What’s on

Charles Atlas: The Mathematics of Consciousness

When it opens in September 2022, watch a newly commissioned video by Charles Atlas that was inspired by Pioneer Works’ space. Unified by a single musical score, the immersive multimedia work will flicker across a 110-feet-wide by 34-feet-tall wall, simulating the ways in which neurons trigger thoughts within the human psyche. Pulling segments from his extensive archives, the exhibition will become the site of a dynamic roster of public programs while paying tribute to the artist’s five-decade career, which has defined and altered contemporary art’s relationship to video and performance.
