Relationship between gender and art explored in Boulder display

January 24, 2014 by  

Viewable next week, the ‘Women, Art, and Technology Exhibition’ examines the role the female gender plays involving technology as seen through the view of contemporary artists in the 21st Century. The museum most likely used brochure printing and poster printing to share the exhibit’s information with people living in the region.

As digital media increases and inhabits every level of today’s lifestyles, this exhibition looks at the relationship being formed between gender and technology and asks if today’s period represents a utopia as we embrace social media and networks. The question of what the relationship is between the human body and technology is also among the matters being examined.

The exhibition includes art by women who engage and lay utopian claims for globalized social technologies, features video art from emerging artisans who respond to widespread media consciousness, and critiques the forms that display power supported by this technology. Another question examined is the relationship between gender frameworks used for technology and art in the 21st Century, and how the affects and reflects on females today.

Admission is $5 per adult and $4 for students, seniors, children over 12, and educators. The Women, Art, and Technology Exhibition will be held on Monday, January 27, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art in Boulder, Colorado. To find out more, or to purchase tickets, take a look at the museum’s website or call their office during normal hours.
