Refest 2.0 / Dissonance: Technology and Freedom

March 5, 2018 - March 10, 2018

La MaMa Galleria | 47 Great Jones Street

Collaboration with Culture Hub

At Refest 2.0, artists, technologists, and activists come together to promote creativity and freedom of expression. It will feature works by national and international artists using various modalities to investigate technology’s role in relationship to freedom of expression, the body, and community. The idea of sharing tools, embracing an open culture in which audiences can interact directly with artists, embodies this freedom. 

About La MaMa Galleria

Founded in 1984, La MaMa La Galleria is a nonprofit gallery committed to nurturing artistic experimentation. La Galleria serves its neighborhood as a venue that encourages an active dialogue between the visual arts, new media, performance, curatorial and educational projects. Its focus is to offer programming that reaches beyond the expectations of traditional gallery and institutional exhibition-making, to a diverse and intergenerational audience. And as a non-profit, La Galleria is able to provide artists and curators with unique exhibition opportunities that are largely out of reach in a commercial gallery setting. Find out more about La MaMa Galleria!
