Systems Prosthetics
a lecture by Michael Wang
Introduction by Laura Diamond
Response by Jonah Rowen

Michael Wang uses systems that operate on a global scale as media for art: climate change, species distribution, resource allocation and the global economy. His works include Carbon Copies, an exhibition linking the production of artworks to the release of greenhouse gases, World Trade, a series tracing the trade in steel from the World Trade Center following the attacks of September 11, 2001; and Extinct in the Wild, a project that engages species that no longer exist in nature but persist under human care.

Wang’s work has been shown in Europe, North and South America, and Asia, most recently at the Parque Cultural de Valparaíso, Chile, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, the Fondazione Prada in Milan, and Foxy Production in New York.

Free and open to the public.
Organized by the Advanced Architectural Design program, Columbia GSAPP.
