Gender v. Technology Performance Salon 

At B4bel4b.

Most people’s understanding of the ways in which gender and technology intersect stops at Facebook pronoun options. But for the Gender v. Technology performance salon taking place at B4bel4b (184 10th St., Oakland) gallery on Saturday, November 21, a group of 23 artists will be investigating the nuanced manner by which gender and technology inform each other in our everyday lives. Twelve of the artists will be giving performances throughout the night, totaling in about two hours of movement, theatrics, and experimentation. For example, two artists plan to get married over video chat and another will be using copper wiring to capture sounds created by the audience and reconfigure them in real time. Between performances, attendees can engage with installations — mostly video work, projections, and sculpture — that explore the ways in which technology can both require us to conform to gender categories and liberate us from them, specifically in the Bay Area.
