Curators Kelsey Bennett and Rémy Bennett envision a utopian genderless future, where notions like patriarchy, misogyny, racism and transphobia no longer exist. Where does “the female” fit into this imagined new world order? LIFEFORCE, presented by The Untitled Space and Indira Cesarine, aims to depict this fantasy female future, where the image of “the female” has been reclaimed and recoded by women themselves.
Inspired by feminist science fiction and Afrofuturists of the 1970s and Donna Haraway’s A Cyborg Manifesto, the exhibition features 24 female artists: Amanda Turner Pohan, Aria McManus, Chiara Girimonti, Elizabeth Ilsley, Hein Koh, Jeanette Hayes, Jessica Stoller, Jo Shane, Juno Calypso, Kelsey Bennett, Maggie Dunlap, Maisie Cousins, Monica Garza, Nadia Lee Cohen, Nicole Nadeau,Panteha Abareshi, Parker Day, Raine Trainor, Rémy Bennett, Sam Cannon, Signe Pierce, Tafv Sampson, and Taira Rice.
The group show opened on July 26 and remains on view at The Untitled Space through August 6.
