Exhibition: Machine Divas: The Archive
Friday 1st of May, 15:00, @ Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Mall, SW1Y 5AH London, United Kingdom

“This Friday Salon aims to investigate feminist media art practices through documentation of pre-internet, early net art and media art, examining the ways in which new media, technology and mass digital culture interact with the human body and its expressions, or constructions, of identity and gender.

Based on the Kathy Rae Huffman media art library, a book collection that was recently donated to Goldsmiths Library, this open discussion will be accompanied by a display of rare media art catalogues and monographs that bring together contemporary pioneering feminist media art practices from the late 80s to the present. The conversation will be followed by a screening of Max Almy’s Leaving the 20th Century (1982, 11 mins).”
