The MAXlive Experience 

Artists work with some of today’s most advanced artificial intelligence technology to create innovative, never-before-seen live performances.

Games, light shows, sound installations, and more are packed into MAXlive 2021’s electric mix of new works that you must see to believe.

Our popular discussion series, MAXforum, is back—this time in-person. Join us for another season of conversations between award-winning artists, top scientists, and cutting-edge technologists—including those who have created the pieces featured in the festival.

MAXlive 2021: The Neuroverse is made possible by the support of Science Sandbox, an initiative of the Simons Foundation.
