Event Details

This exhibition features graffiti-style portraits of one hundred famous actresses known for their beauty. Inspired by asking an Artificial Intelligence to make him a list of one hundred actresses to draw as part of his ‘Nightmares Series’ portraits, Uzzell-Edwards embarked upon this artistic behemoth with the following mantra in mind: “The AI suggested them, but did not create them. That was my job.”
