Women, Art & Technology:an uneasy access?

Women, Art & Technology:an uneasy access?

“Women, Art, and Technology: An Uneasy Access?” is presented in conjunction with the exhibition, “Future Imagined: What Next?” which was part of the ZERO1 2012 Biennial. Don’t miss this exciting panel discussion with Michal Gavish, Penelope Finnie, Penny Nii, and Carla Riggi. The exhibition highlights the interplay between artists, technologists and scientists as they converge to test the artistic limits of the possible in a technologically driven world. This complementary public forum brings together a diverse set of practitioners who are forging the creative edges of art, science, and technology. The focus will be on the triumphs and challenges of being a woman working in a technology-based art practice. The women on our panel will recount the contributions they make as innovators and entrepreneurs and will share their perspectives on how to prosper in a technological environment in which men predominate. The forum also seeks to find answers to underlying questions, such as: “Is the presence of successful women in the current digital boom causing a power shift?” “Are successful women breaking gender and cultural barriers and advancing an agenda that will benefit women as a whole?”

Hope to see you there!
