This Thursday, September 12th, 5-7pm - join us for the Opening Reception of Distillates

Our fall season opens with Distillates, featuring Cathy Daley, Nathalie Maranda, and Pilar Mehlis. Each artist’s work distills forces – sociological, environmental, cultural and geographical, that shape their inspiration and identity. Daley dances with socialized notions of femininity. Maranda’s work is grounded in our connection to an increasingly vulnerable natural world. And Mehlis explores the experience of migration and the transformations that unfurl through displacement. Each artist condenses their insight into artworks that draw us into their point of view.

The exhibition runs to November 2nd.  

Gallery Hours are
Wednesday to Saturday

11 - 5 and by appointment

Dr. Toon Calders (University of Antwerp) presents Machine Learning: Bias In, Bias Out. Artificial intelligence is more and more responsible for decisions that have a huge impact on our lives. But predictions made using data mining and algorithms can affect population subgroups differently. Academic researchers and journalists have shown that decisions taken by predictive algorithms sometimes lead to biased outcomes, reproducing inequalities already present in society. Is it possible to make a fairness-aware data mining process? Are algorithms biased because people are too? Or is it how machine learning works at the most fundamental level?
