Join artist Antonia Wright and PAMM Assistant Curator Maritza Lacayo for a conversation about Wright’s newest digital artwork installation, Women in Labor. Wright and Lacayo will also discuss how art can be used as a catalyst for conversation in a post-Roe age, the role of artists and curators when thinking about issues of reproductive freedom, the ways in which recent events will impact the art world and artist practices, and the power of storytelling to foster empathy and understanding. There will be a Q&A to follow.
About Women in Labor
Women in Labor is a generative sound art composition that uses data sonification to demonstrate the effect of the changing laws around access to safe and legal abortion. Through computational algorithms, the piece sonifies the increase in mileage a woman will now have to travel to access care. Partnering with midwives, the artist has been collecting the sounds women make during labor starting with her own home birth experience in 2015.
