Flesh Spaces—Online Exhibition in the New Media Caucus Header/Footer Gallery

Call to Artists
Deadline: June 21, 2020



Header/Footer Gallery is a digital exhibition space hosted on the New Media Caucus Web Presence. New shows will be curated by NMC members every 3-4 months.

H/F utilizes various NMC platforms to highlight the work of our members, allowing us to generate content which promotes the creative output of our members and situates their work in thoughtfully curated exhibitions that take place across our entire web presence.

H/F Gallery invites artist submissions for the July 1st online exhibition Flesh Spaces. This exhibition concerns the challenges that cyberfeminists in the 1990s posed against a male-dominant technoculture. Flesh spaces were created online by cyberfeminists by using Net.art, installations, and publications who interjected their bodies into cyberspace to celebrate women’s bodies, gender, and sexuality. Flesh Spaces challenged the otherwise disembodiment or transcendence of the body in cyberspace. However, despite the group’s efforts for coalition, their group remained predominantly white and cisgender. 30 years after cyberfeminism, we wish to bring to light the voices and artworks of WOC and members of the LGBTQ+ community that presently interrogate recent issues surrounding online spaces and digital technologies.

We invite works and projects that:
– challenge and interrupt the logic of the shiny, cool, new aesthetic popularized by male technoculture.
– use the body as a site for protest in online spaces.
– use the image of the cyborg or the posthuman as a mode of critique of binary gender and sexuality.
– explore digital technologies to uncover racial, and gendered bias from the predominant technoculture.
– focus on the bodies of marginalized individuals and brings them to the forefront in digital technologies.

We are open to any digital medium that can be shown or hosted in our online exhibition (ex. images of installations, videos of work, interactive browser based experiences, etc.). If you have any questions regarding appropriate mediums please get in touch with KT Duffy at ktduffyinc@gmail.com
