Stephanie Dinkins creates platforms for dialogue about artificial intelligence as it intersects race, gender, aging, and our future histories.
Through her work, Dinkins has become a central figure nationally and internationally recognized for exposing bias and inequity within artificial intelligence systems. Weaving together art production and exhibition, community-based workshops and public speaking all with the intention of encouraging action towards making artificial intelligence systems more inclusive, accessible and transparent.
In her Stamps talk, Dinkins will discuss her new and interactive installations and workshops that build on her concept of Afro-now-ism and how her work develops a dialogue with the audience on the hierarchies embedded within machine learning and AI architecture and one’s individual agency in transforming the algorithms within it.
The first survey of renowned transmedia artist Stephanie Dinkins’ work is on view at Stamps Gallery (201 S. Division St.) through October 23, 2021.
