De:Formal is pleased to present The Rise of the Care Machines, an online digital art exhibition exploring the tension/contraction between motherhood and art. Conceiving the digital medium as a place open to the possibility of new relationships and revealing a whole new way of approaching the symbolic and cultural configuration of motherhood.
What is the impact of motherhood in your artwork? Every artist involved in the exhibition has answered this question in their own way, configuring an artist manifesto dedicated to all new media artists who are making a juggling act between their life and work while also constantly trying to break the barriers of romanticization, working out of love and self-sacrifice.
Featuring works by Ching Ching Cheng, Julie Béna, Catherine Biocca, Sofía Córdova, Jullie Grosche,
Faith Holland, Hildegard Holland Watter, Monika Horčicová, Rory Scott and Flavia Visconte.
The Rise of the Care Machines is curated by Wednesday Kim and co-curated by Flavia Visconte.
