We are proud to announce that biolab members Brice Ammar Khodja, jacqueline beaumont, Vanessa Mardirossian, and Philippe Vandal will be presenting work at the Milieux Institute End-of-Year Exhibition and Symposium: In the Middle, a Chimera. Their work will be shown over the course of two weeks in exhibitions at Eastern Bloc and Milieux and at a symposium on May 13th.
From the official Milieux announcement:
Though theoretically an exhibition, In the Middle’s structure will feel more like that of a biennale: a dynamism will imbue these two weeks, bringing viewers to see affixed projects and ephemeral endeavours throughout the city. This will all take place concurrently with a symposium segment (May 13th) where Milieux researchers and alumnae will present their current projects
In the Middle, a Chimera considers how new, breakthrough technology developed under the veil of capitalism inevitably bends to its whirling, maelstrom pull (sometimes despite more communitarian originary intentions): the goal of this exhibition/project is to envision and develop community-oriented futures where this pull is redirected towards mutually beneficial relationships, and ways in which we might undermine or re-conceptualize these technologies to not only nurture ourselves but our surrounding ecosystems and environments.
