LACMA Curator Leslie Jones Provides Insight on Landmark Early Computer Art Exhibition

“I would say there is a circuit board aesthetic, a punch-card aesthetic, as well as an interest in pristine and gleaming metallic surfaces, reminiscent of the IBM mainframe.”
– LACMA curator Leslie Jones, describing the aesthetic of one of the six rooms in “Coded: Art Enters the Computer Age, 1952-1982.” In conversation with Bronaċ Ferran, she shares the landmark exhibition was inspired by a 2013 donation of computer drawings from the Frederick Hammersley Foundation which left her in awe: “[it] was unlike anything I had seen before.”
