Opening Reception, Punctures: Textiles in Digital and Material Time

Friday, September 20 @ 18:0022:00
Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center,
617 Main St.
Buffalo, New York 14203 United States
+ Google Map

The Squeaky Wheel will host an Opening Reception for Punctures: Textiles in Digital and Material Time including a performance at 9 p.m. by Charlie Best.

Squeaky Wheel is pleased to announce Punctures: Textiles in Digital and Material Time. Drawing from the little-known but expansive history connecting media arts and textile production, the exhibition features artists invested in the material, critical and liberatory politics of their intersections.

From the Lumière brothers taking the intermittent motion of a sewing machine to create the cinematograph, to the punch cards of the Jacquard loom forming the basis of modern computation, and the role of sewing and gendered labor in jobs like editing and dyeing in film production, textile production remains an essential, but insufficiently unacknowledged formal and social influence on media arts. These underpinnings aim to not only explicate an alternate history, but are meant to find ways to speculate new futures for media practice.

Consisting of three exhibitions and public programs that weave into each other, audiences will engage with artworks exploring a wide range of practices including, trans fashion and domesticity; gendered and immigrant labor under global racial capitalism; Gelede women's commemoration, protest and power as represented in textile work; speculative future-casting through Oglala Lakota knowledge systems, and more.

Opening Reception: Thou Art… Will Give… by Eric Kunsman

Friday, September 20 @ 18:0021:00
Flower City Arts Center (formerly Genesee Center for Arts and Education),
713 Monroe Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Flower City Arts Center will host an Opening Reception for Thou Art… Will Give… by Eric Kunsman, on display through October 26.

Thou Art… Will Give… is an exhibition of photographs by Eric Kunsman documenting the Eastern State Penitentiary, a former prison in Philadelphia, PA. Through this body of photographs Eric offers some of the atmosphere experienced by the prisoners when the Penitentiary was active. Photographs of entries from the Warden's 1800s logbooks blend with Eric's photographs to give a historical sense of the prisoners and their treatment. Through these images and text, visitors can share some of loneliness, hopelessness, and desperate search for redemption that drove many of the spirits still trapped within the walls of Eastern State.
