Refresh Art Tech, 205 Hudson, Hunter College and the Knockdown Centre, New York, 2019

REFRESH is a collaborative + politically engaged platform in Art, Science, and Technology. As a collective we begin with inclusion as a starting point for pursuing sustainable artistic and curatorial practices.

Virginia Barratt and Francesca da Rimini, collaborating as In Her Interior, presented an installation Her eyes were as black as coal at 205 Hudson Gallery, an experimental writing workshop Mxtrx Class at the Knockdown Centre, a performance This Platform Life and an artist talk at Hunter College Masters Program.

Refresh Art Tech comprised a two-day conference, an exhibition Refiguring the Future and a workshop and performance component.Tracing how science and technology have shaped the world around us Refresh Art Tech brings forth critical perspectives that offer ways of living differently in relation to land, self, and others that we must take seriously in our current political moment. Participants expand the work science does, taking up other methodologies such as story-telling and speculation, to challenge structural injustices and engage technology by posing new questions and experiments.
