Making/Breaking the Binary: Women, Art & Technology (1968-85)

New Media and Chance

As part of Making/Breaking the Binary: Women, Art & Technology (1968-85) curated by Kelsey Halliday, we present three programs of film and video held in conjunction with the video works presented by Vox Populi at the Icebox Grey Area and the core exhibition at the Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery at University of the Arts on view from October 8 – December 8. 

This program highlights two groundbreaking 1970s collaborations between female new media artists and the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.
