This Week at LACMA

February 5, 2023

Coded: Art Enters the Computer Age, 1952–1982, which opens Sunday, February 12, examines the origins of what we now call digital art, featuring artists, writers, musicians, choreographers, and filmmakers working directly with computers as well as those using algorithms and other systems to produce their work.

Whether computer-generated or not, the many artworks considered here reflect the simultaneous wonder and alienation characteristic of the 1960s and ’70s, along with the utopian and dystopian possibilities of these new machines.
