Artist Carla Gannis and poet Justin Petropoulos of <legend></legend> orchestrate two artist/ writer collaborations, String Literal, over two dates at Brooklyn’s TRANSFER Gallery. Following up Anthony Antonellis + Anthony Tognazzini’s ‘Closer.mp4‘ last week, ‘Chelsea Manning’s Pussy’ celebrates women in computing. Having already wowed us with her own Credit Card Curation number porn recently, artist Faith Holland joins forces with Sarah Jane Stoner in recognising Manning in her achievements in dropping a database of the US government’s ‘third world’ exploitations at the expense of her freedom and coming out as a woman the day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison for the deed.
Adding to the list of unheralded women documented in Sadie Plant’s Zeros + Ones, Holland and Stoner celebrate Manning’s role with the exhibition on Friday, September 20, as well as the opportunity for attendees to write, draw or create something to be sent to Manning at the United States Disciplinary Barracks in Kansas.
