I hope you can join me this Friday for the opening of my new exhibition, Olivia Robinson: 1899 - 1902. We just finished the installation, and I am very excited. It opens at the Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland Friday, September 7 (5-8PM), and it will up until October 20th.
The exhibition is a collection of work that I (theoretically) created 113 years ago, at the height of the Technological Revolution. Olivia Robinson: 1899 - 1902 includes new electronic fiber works (a collection of thirteen printed textile circuits), sculpture (a fully functional sales cart for peddling human sweat), video (a woman becoming slowly covered in salt), photography, and a series of 188 hand-painted signs. In these works, the time period of the Technological Revolution is used as a framework to explore issues of power, both scientific and social, and to reflect on how those issues continue to exist and evolve today.
