Before my curators talk on April 6, I want to share a brief reading list of articles and artists that have inspired my thinking for the AVATARS exhibitions.
Art in the Age of the Internet 1989 - Today; catalogue from 2018 exhibition at the ICA in Boston
“Digitizing Race: visual cultures of the internet” by Lisa Nakamura
“A Cyborg Manifesto” by Donna Haraway
“Bodies in Space: Identity, Sexuality, and the Abstraction of the Digital and Physical” by Karen Archey
A few of the artists that have inspired and influenced my thinking on the topic of avatars (just a few of many)
Lynn Hershman Leeson
These are meant to be quick lists to share a sliver of artists and writers who have recently contributed to my thinking on the topic of avatars. It would be impossible to list ALL of the writings and artwork that has influenced me.
