Can we make techno-social systems that don’t suck? Or is the future already prescribed by the obsessive intrusion of social media platforms, machine recognition systems, and the AI arms race to come? Taking cues from cyberfeminism, the works in this solo exhibition by media artist Yvette Granata moves with these questions through performance video works, an immersive 360 essay that crosses Google’s Machine Vision API with immersive WebVR, and more.
Drawing from the tradition of cyberfeminism, the works in the show inhabit the space of ‘hard core processing’ and the waste-land of contemporary data-life. The exhibition poses the concept of a ‘post-cyberfeminist datum’ as a type of data that has already been banned in the future. Tech-friend or tech-foe, Cyberfeminist datum is at an edge that wanders through this.

Join us on Friday, June 15th for the opening reception of the exhibition at Squeaky Wheel at 7pm and don’t miss a public conversation between the artist and Maiko Tanaka at 7:30pm. A newly commissioned essay regarding Granata’s work by scholar Bogna M. Konior.
