Momentum: Women/Art/Technology

February 23, 2012 @ 2:20 pm - 5:00 pm

College Art Association Annual Conference 2012:

Momentum: Women/Art/Technology focuses on the concepts, innovations, and impact of women artists who embrace technology as their mode of personal expression. Little attention has been given to women artists’ contributions to the digital world; yet theorists like Donna Haraway have addressed how technology can work to reduce gender disparities. This panel of artists, curators and theorists will provoke dialogue on how art is produced and experienced today, raising issues of whether women artists use technology to express content that is gender related, why technological advancement is associated with men, and how to change public perception to acknowledge women artists as innovators of new technologies in art.
