Avatar Poetics

*Screening on Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays

Avatar Poetics is a program of videos by artists who use animation, digitally mediated modes of performance, and computer-generated characters to explore themes of the virtual ‘self’ as it relates to queerness, cyberfeminism, fantasy world-building, and the erotics, horrors and absurdities of the digital body adrift across the contemporary media/social landscape. In addition to five recent works, screened in compilation on Wed., Fri., & Sun., this exhibition is presented alongside (on alternating days) Remembrance of Things Fast: True Stories Visual Lies, 1994 by John Maybury (b. 1958, London).
