MoMA PS 1 will present Ian Cheng's (b. 1984) first US museum solo presentation, featuring the artist's complete "Emissary Trilogy" (2015-2017), a series of three live simulations dedicated to the history of cognitive evolution. Using an engine for developing video games, "Emissary" is made up of open-ended animations with n fixed outcome or narrative-a format Cheng calls live stimulation. The trilogy was recently aquired by The Museum of Modern Art.
