Reading Red Book Club: A Cyborg Manifesto

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join Reading Red – an Artpace book club – and explore literature that has inspired artists and exhibitions.

A Cyborg Manifesto by Donna Harraway was selected by Hudson Showroom artist Virginia Lee Montgomery (VLM). The 1985 essay analyzes traditional ideas of feminism and encourages establishing alliances through affinity. The cyborg figure is presented to support feminist moves beyond the limitations of conventional politics.

VLM is a video artist, sculptor, and facilitator. She received her BFA from The University of Texas at Austin in 2008 and her MFA from Yale University in Sculpture in 2016. Working across video, performance, sound, and sculpture, her artwork is a research practice of feminist metaphysics. To learn more about VLM and view her works as part of After Carolee: Tender and Fierce, please visit our website.

The book club meeting will be held virtually on Zoom, Saturday, April 24, at 2:00PM. Reading Red Book Club is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
