The Seduction of a Cyborg group exhibition is on at Los Angeles’ Human Resources, opening October 8 and running from October 7 to October 23.
Curated by David Evans Frantz, Hannah Grossman, and Simone Krug, the show takes the feminist work of artist Lynn Hershman Leeson, her 2002 feature-length film Teknolust in particular, as a starting point for exploring “intimacy, sex, and desire as related to technocratic fantasies of futurity, (re)production of bodies, and fractured selfhood in the digital age.”
The exhibition will feature the work of 16 artists and collectives, including Leeson herself, working across video, photography, installation, and web-based projects. Seduction of a Cyborg is a cross-generational project — Sadie Benning, Hannah Black, Shu Lea Cheang, Faith Holland, and Juliana Huxtable among them — representing a range of practices and approaches to deconstructing our understanding of “the networked and plugged-in subject” within technofeminism, queer theory, and disembodiment.
