Save Event: Familiar Machines

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Familiar Machines brings together works which explore the movement of body and machine through public and online space.


Featuring work by Guerrilla Girls, Dominique Golden, ORLAN, Hannah Parikh, Sondra Perry, Kembra Pfahler, Millie Quick, Magali Reus, Global Sistaz and Martha Wilson. 

The exhibition presents mechanisms of power and feminine governance that question patriarchal systems, and reinforce ideas around social disobedience. These works combine strategies that oscillate between object and subject, where raw materiality and the body are both a commodity and a vehicle for production. The spaces where these issues intersect offer a nonhierarchical approach to how function and identity can influence through anonymity. Familiar Machines uses humour, grotesque imagery, technological manipulation and the body as a medium to diffuse discrimination.
