This event has ended.

Disembodied Behaviors celebrates the potential of digital individuals, who range from avatars imbued with cultural memory to AI narrators, to dismantle predictive structures of power. The exhibition is presented in two parts: a looped, daily screening at bitforms gallery, and an online exhibition. Select works by Julie Béna, Vitória Cribb, Kumbirai Makumbe, LaJuné McMillian, and Alicia Mersy implement measures of social critique to reject self-fulfilling prophecies and commodified capital applied to populations. Each work presents a focused refusal of normative behaviors, including conventions of time and space, typically applied to human bodies. This allows us to engage future landscapes in the digital component of the exhibition, which we are pleased to present in collaboration with New Art City, an online art space for works of new media. The virtual presentation of six site-specific, multi-user experiences echoes the gallery’s screening program in a 3D atmosphere.



from November 10, 2020 to December 19, 2020
Live screening daily at bitforms Tuesday–Saturday, 11 AM–5:30 PM.
