DESCRIPTION

We Interrupt Your Program is a group show of video and new media works by fourteen emerging and mid-career female artists. Through their work, the artists intervene in, reconfigure, augment, and/or re-contextualize dominant narratives of war, violence, power, science, technology, gender, and the natural environment from a feminist, or at least female, perspective.

The exhibition includes work made by computer-manipulated video, video installation, interactive sculpture, and photography. All of the artists respond to mainstream media including network television, mass market feature films, computer and video gamesāˆ’interrogating them as restrictive cultural vocabularies that routinely exclude the female voice and point of view. Their work is powerfully expressive, conceptually complex, technically accomplished, uses humor and satire, and is relevant to our culture's historical moment.
