Angela Washko: Talking Feminism in the Spaces Most Hostile to It  
by
4/20/16 Posted 4/20/16

We have discussed the rapidly growing intersection between new media art and feminism with a number of artists in previous columns. This week we take a deeper look at that phenomenon in an interview with artist, writer and facilitator Angela Washko who is at the forefront of the movement. She famously interviewed the notorious pick-up-artist Roosh V for her project Banged which resulted in an overload of attention for her, both positive and horribly negative. Washko’s work consistently tackl... [more]

Her work bridged the gap between “Tumblr” culture and fine art and helped set a precedent for the aesthetic obsessions of the scene that are still being mined today. Her education in fine art painting is clearly evident in the construction of her pieces. There is a subtle and precise attention to detail as well as a distinct subversive wit that elevates her compositions to disti... [more]

Morehshin Allahyari is an Iranian artist currently based in California. Her work subverts the often self-absorbed and ephemeral themes of new media art to create art that is overtly political and meaningful. Iran itself often serves as a primary inspiration and she is enthusiastic to dispel assumptions about her home country.

First, apologies for the puns to come. It’s difficult to talk about sexuality and eroticism without making a bad pun or two. Sexuality has seemingly always been a site of discomfort in our culture: through it, we are laid naked and bare, both literally and via the fetishes that express the darkest sublimations of gendered relations. The advent of a communication tool and platform for largely consequence-free expression—the internet—has greatly affected the role pornography and se... [more]

In writing this review, Dear Reader, it has been difficult to retain a narrative thread. Each work at ONLY REAL, Public Works latest exhibition, seems to reference another work in the exhibition while simultaneously opening up further implications and complications in a seemingly endless cascade of elusive meaning, contributing to a feeling that each explication is about to collapse in on itself. This feeling of anxiety of collapse is an apt affect for a series of visual explorations of the invisible... [more]
