Making/Breaking the Binary: Women, Art & Technology (1968-1985)

Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery

Dara Birnbaum, "Technology / Transformation: Wonder Woman," 1978-79, 5:50 min, color, sound

Reception: October 8, 2017, 4 - 7 p.m.

Making/Breaking the Binary: Women, Art & Technology (1968-1985) is a multi-venue project curated by Kelsey Halliday Johnson surveying a generation of pioneering artists in new media, reconsidering their role as technology innovators who helped shape the information age. The core exhibition will take place at Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery with auxiliary screenings and programs taking place at Lightbox Film Center and Vox Populi. The project surveys female-identifying artists across disciplines engaged with early computer art, painting, video art, experimental photography, copy machine art, electronic music, publication projects and more. These artists will be put into direct dialogue with a broader history of women in technology through a reading library and historical ephemera.



Making/Breaking the Binary: Women, Art & Technology (1968-85) has been supported by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
