Join the Art Department for an artist talk by Kaitlyn Jo Smith, the 2023-24 Alice C. Cole '42 Fellow. Her interdisciplinary studio research considers the implications of automation on labor and religion in relation to America’s working class. Through the implementation of automated technologies and machine learning, her work questions the authority of algorithms while promoting a dialogue around future applications of artificial intelligence.

The Cole Fellowship is awarded to an outstanding early-career painter or sculptor (broadly defined), providing funds to support one year of unimpeded time and space to experiment, develop a body of work, and focus on future artistic goals. Cole Fellowships are based on nominations from prominent members of the national artist community. The fellowship is made possible by the generous bequest of Wellesley alumna Alice C. Cole '42. Aware of the burdens that may face recent graduates of art programs, Ms. Cole makes it possible for an artist to have 'a limited time free of economic necessity'-- an immensely valuable gift.
