The Imitation Game
Saturday 13 February 2016–Sunday 5 June 2016

An exhibition by eight international artists who explore the theme of machines and the imitation of life

With a title inspired by Alan Turing’s Turing Test, devised to test a computer’s ability to imitate human thought, introduced in an article while he was working at The University of Manchester, The Imitation Game includes three new commissions and works never before seen in the UK.

As the birthplace of the industrial machine-age, Manchester has a rich history of computer science including developing the world’s first stored-program computer. This exhibition looks back to Turing’s timeless questions about our relationship with the machine, and explores their continuing relevance today.

The exhibition includes work by eight international contemporary artists who explore the theme of machines and the imitation of life: Ed Atkins, James Capper, Paul Granjon, Tove Kjellmark, Lynn Hershman Leeson, David Link, Mari Velonaki and Yu-Chen Wang.
