Women in Art and Technology

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

A.I.R. Gallery and 2013–14 Fellowship Artist, Amelia Marzec, are pleased to announce an evening of presentations and a roundtable discussion.

Technology is the medium we use to communicate today, but we still experience a gender gap and a generation gap in terms of women’s participation in technology as a creative medium. A.I.R. Gallery invites artists, curators, creative technologists, critics, historians and researchers with an interest in women, art, and technology to join us on April 23 for an evening event. We’ll talk about women trailblazers in new media; enjoy presentations by digital artists; and hold a roundtable discussion to consider these issues within the larger context of the history of art. Our interest is in creating a platform for further conversations and participation at the first all female cooperative gallery in the United States.

Speakers will include Daria Dorosh, Laurel Ptak, Marisa Olson, Carrie Mae Rose, Sarah Grant, and Sujin Lee.
Demos will include Virginie Sommet and Miki Foster.

New American Sweatshop


Dates:

United States of America

Imagine a future where the American dollar is worthless. To re-build the economy, citizens must use the only resource available: decades of post-consumer waste. With no way to afford expensive international electronics, they sift through products that have been subject to planned obsolescence for the possibility of working parts. The goal is to build a new communications infrastructure that is community-controlled and far from the prying eyes of any government.

The New American Sweatshop manifests itself as an installation that models a functioning manufacturing plant. It relies on intern labor to hand-build semi-functioning prototypes of what our technology could look like in the future. All supplies, furniture and uniforms are created from local salvaged goods.
