Freedom Baird – Mined

Recording of the event:

Friends, after a long hiatus we are thrilled to return with a new ATNE event!

Join artists of FeministFuturist for a discussion about value, currency, monuments and exchange in art now and in the future.

This conversation accompanies the exhibition, CURRENCY. The exhibition—on display now through Sunday October 16, 2022 at The Boston Cyberarts Gallery—is created, curated and presented by the collective and encompasses both physical and virtual work. CURRENCY’s themes include the concept of monuments (their permanence or impermanence in physical or digital realms); Feminism in digital platforms; and ways in which a Feminist perspective can heal Earth from a male-dominated, capitalist-technological hegemony.

When: Tuesday, October 11th, 7 pm
Where: Virtually on Zoom
Presenters: FeministFuturist artists
Free event
Please register in advance.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event.

About the Presenters

FeministFuturist artists on the panel: Freedom Baird, Christina Balch, Marjorie Kaye, AK Liesenfeld, Carolyn Wirth

Intro by Chris Clepper of Art Technology New England (ATNE)

Freedom Baird is a multi-disciplinary artist exploring the interconnection between humans and nature. Her work addresses systems and society, and often includes performance and viewer participation. She holds master’s degrees from the Media Lab at MIT and the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and has exhibited recently at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art and the Fuller Craft Museum.

Christina Balch (she/her) is a multi-disciplinary artist, producer, and technologist. Her work explores perceptions of self through digital technology and data. 

Marjorie Kaye is a visual artist currently based in North Adams in the Berkshires. Although primarily a painter working with gouache, she has also explored her wild, unruly, yet precise compositions in wood as well. She is the Director of Galatea Fine Art in Boston’s SoWA Art and Design District in addition to her art practice, and has had extensive exhibitions and has been awarded grants from the Provincetown Art Museum and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Anna Katharina (AK) Liesenfeld is a fashion designer and virtual reality concept artist. She has worked with Boston Fashion Week, the Peabody Essex Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, creating garments and accessories exploring identity in fashion. AK will be showing a salon made entirely using VR. With this piece, she hopes to inspire the audience to join her in the conversation around the legacy of pioneering female educator Helen Temple Cooke.

Carolyn Wirth, a Boston-area sculptor and occasional installation artist, uses the figure to describe people and landscapes historically unrepresented due to gender bias. Her practice inhabits the experiences of feminist-defined representation; she has been artist-in-residence at several regional museums and exhibits in numerous New England galleries.
