Join us for a Lunchtime Talk with Jason’s Eppink—American curator, designer, and prankster.

“Jason engages in public space magic, open source scheming, moving image mischief, photon reappropriation, and linguistic subterfuge. His doings have been seen worldwide because they’re all on the internet. Also they’ve been seen worldwide in galleries, but no one really goes to those. Good Magazine proclaimed him one of the top 100 most important, exciting, and innovative people making our world better and changing the way we live.

When he’s not doing that, Eppink creates interactive experiences; curates events, exhibitions, and installations; and throws raging art parties as the Associate Curator of Digital Media at the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City. When he’s not doing that, Eppink corrupts young minds as an adjunct professor at New York University, where he teaches students how to make animated GIFs, video games, and Twitter bots under the auspices of art.”
