OCAD University's Florence Program Visiting Artist + Speaker Series welcomes ANNA ROSE

APRIL 6 + 7 ANNA ROSE

OCAD University's Florence Program is hosting a Visiting Artist + Speaker Series which brings six international artists, critics and gallerists to our international campus to engage in artist talks, critiques and individual studio visits. This unique opportunity offers students insight into how a successful international practice is developed as well receiving critical feedback on their independent studio work. 

Anna Rose (b. 1982, Massachusetts, USA) has lived and worked in Florence, Italy since 2004. She received her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute in 2014. Her work spans video, photography, costume and installation with a sensibility towards the relationship between body and environment, entering into conversation with historical, psychological, and cultural mythologies of place. She has recently exhibited her work in Munich (Das KloHäuschen), Salzburg (Periscope), Prato (Tuscan Art Industry), and Denver (Center for Photographic Arts Center) among others, and has been awarded artist residencies in Iceland (Gamli skóli) and Hungary (D’clinic).  www.annamrose.com

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?
