Pioneer Works is an artist-run cultural center founded in 2012. Imagined by its founder, Dustin Yellin, as a place in which artists, scientists, and thinkers from various backgrounds converge, this “museum of process” takes its primary inspiration from utopian visionaries such as Buckminster Fuller, and radical institutions such as Black Mountain College.

Situated in a 3 story, red brick building in Brooklyn NY, Pioneer Works houses large scale art exhibitions, science talks, musical performances, residency programs, a community garden and tech labs where artists, thinkers and community members can access free of charge.

As head of creative-tech initiatives at Pioneer Works, Tommy Martinez will discuss PW's process of experimentation with artists responding to social challenges through the lens of computational systems. A survey of past projects with artists such as Nicole Eisenman, Stephanie Dinkins, Martine Syms, and Claudia Hart will be discussed as they relate to creative experimentation in emerging technology.
