Artificial Retirement specifically addresses the question, What is failure in this technologically aided era? The show presents artworks and performances by artists working with ideas of ‘Failure, Imperfection, and Destruction.’ We live in a time in which electronic devices successfully execute our orders offering more convenient and improved lifestyles. It is almost impossible to detach from this digitally-driven world. Is this because we feel safer, healthier, and happier than ever before? Or is it simply that we have become so dependent on these devices that we no longer question their efficacy? August 19, 6-9pm: Opening Reception begins at 6pm, performances start at 7pm. Performances by Byron Rich and Heather Brand, Niki Passath, and Fan Letters. August 28, 2-6pm: ‘In Honor of Imperfection’ workshop with Zoey Hart. September 4, 2pm-3pm: ‘Blind Ambition’ workshop with Anne Murray and Virginia Mallon. September 8, 6pm: Flux Thursday with presentations by Artificial Retirement participating artists. September 11, 6pm: Closing Performances by Amelia Marzec and Robert Mayson, Openfield, Kat Sullivan, Sergio Mora-Diaz and Caitlin Sikora.
