Art + Culture

A.I.R. Gallery Hosts “Women in Art and Technology” 7/22

DUMBO’s A.I.R. Gallery, in conjunction with Brooklyn-based 2013–14 Fellowship Artist, Amelia Marzec, will host the second installment of “Women in Art and Technology,” an evening of presentations, discussion, and exhibitions on Tuesday, July 22 from 6-9pm.

“Women in Art and Technology” focuses gender inequality through an examination of the gender gap and generation gap in terms of women’s participation in technology as a creative medium.

A.I.R. Gallery invites artists, curators, creative technologists, critics, historians and researchers with an interest in women, art, and technology to attend this evening event. There will be discussion of women trailblazers in new media, presentations and exhibitions by digital artists, and a roundtable discussion to consider these issues within the larger context of the history of art. A.I.R.’s interest is in creating a platform for further conversations and participation at the first all-female cooperative gallery in the United States.
