Live Stage: Feminism, Art, and Technology [us NYC]

From the (Trans)Gendered Body to the Cyborg: Feminism, Art, and Technology — Panelists: Bang Geul Han, Yael Kanarek, Muriel Magenta and Gayle Salomon; Moderators: Kat Griefen and Ferris Olin :: March 26, 2011; 2:00 pm :: Cantor Auditorium, The Brooklyn Museum of Art, 200 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, New York.

Now in its fourth year, the annual From the (Trans)Gendered Body to the Cyborg: Feminism, Art, and Technology series considers the most current critical issues and concerns for women artists, and celebrates Women in the Arts during National Women’s History Month. The discussion will explore how contemporary women artists make use of a variety of new technologies in their work and how projects have changed, how internet have affected the concept of how we see gender, sex, and the body itself.

PANELISTS:

Bang Geul Han was born and raised in Seoul, Korea. Han earned a MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics, Alfred University in Alfred, NY and her BFA from the Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea. Based in the U.S. since 2003, she participated in the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, the MacDowell Colony and the 2010 Triangle Artist’s Workshop. She was a resident artist at Artist Alliance Inc.’s Lower East Side Rotating Studio Program in the fall 2010. Han is Assistant Professor for the Digital Arts and Sciences Program at Clarkson University.

Yael Kanarek’s creative practice centers on the fundamental hypothesis that language and numerals render reality, and that this reality is an entirely subjective unified field. Through the shuffling of physical properties that construct our use of language, Kanarek’s work examines how verbal signifiers operate emotionally. Employing modes of authorship such as storytelling, multilingualism, Kanarek manipulates the biographical predisposition of cultural associations. As an Israeli-American, Kanarek’s perception is tempered with an awareness of post-national borderlines. Her work enters spaces of meaning determined by a global network and the negotiation of identity that occurs when confronted with multiple systems. Crossing these sensibilities with her observation of the Internet as a network made of language with most recent projects highlighting connection and rejection. Selected for the 2002 Whitney Biennial, Kanarek has also exhibited at The Drawing Center, New York; Beral Madra Contemporary Art, Istanbul; National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens; and The Jewish Museum, New York. Her work has been seen in New York galleries including Kenny Schachter Contemporary, Silverstein Gallery, and A.I.R Gallery. In addition to a Rockefeller New Media Fellowship and an Eyebeam Honorary Fellowship, Kanarek is the recipient of grants from the Jerome Foundation Media Arts and New York Foundation for the Arts; and commissions from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and The Alternative Museum. She holds a MFA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Muriel Magenta is a “new genre” artist who attended CUNY Queens, Johns Hopkins and Arizona State University. As a native New Yorker she explores the interface between various electronic media: 3D animation, video, digital graphics, net art, installation, multimedia, performance, and sculpture. Her larger objective is to create a visual experience in an actual space, and then transmit it over electronic networks into virtual spaces. Conversely, Magenta produces art for the Internet that she translates to gallery and theatre environments. An exemplary project involving net and gallery interaction is The World’s Women Online!, showcasing the art of women in global electronic networks. Images from each artist’s web entry were streamed live from the WWOL website to a video wall in a gallery. In turn, the video wall in the gallery was further programmed to display the images in a choreographed design over nine monitors. Appropriately, the project was presented at the United Nations World Conference on Women, Beijing. The women’s art movement remains a constant in Magenta’s professional life. She was National President of the Women’s Caucus for Art, active in the College Art Association’s Committee on Women in the Arts and a strong voice for Affirmative Action at Arizona State University, where she teaches graduate and undergraduate studio courses involving new media concepts and techniques. Solo exhibitions of her installations have been presented all over the U.S.

Gayle Salamon is Assistant Professor of English at Princeton University, where she was the Cotsen LGBT Postdoctoral Fellow in the Princeton Society of Fellows from 2005-2008. Her research interests include phenomenology, gender and queer theory, psychoanalysis, contemporary Continental philosophy and visual culture. She is the author of Assuming a Body: Transgender and Rhetorics of Materiality (Columbia University Press, 2010) on embodiment and transgender subjectivity. Recent articles include “Transfeminism and the Future of Women’s Studies” in Women’s Studies on the Edge, (Joan Scott, ed., Duke University Press, 2008), “The Sexual Schema: Transposition and Transgender in Merleau-Ponty’s Phenomenology of Perception” in You’ve Changed: Sex Reassignment and Personal Identity, (Laurie Schrage, ed., Oxford University Press, 2008) and “Justification and QueerMethod, or: Leaving Philosophy” in Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy, Vol 24 No. 1, Winter 2009. She is currently at work on a manuscript exploring narrations of bodily pain in contemporary memoir entitled Chronic Pain and the Language of the Self.
