CODE/SWITCH @ Woman Made Gallery

  • Woman Made Gallery 685 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60642 United States (map)

CODE/SWITCH | May 13th-July 28th
Opening Reception May 27th | 6-8pm

In linguistics, code-switching occurs when a speaker alternates between two or more languages, or language varieties, in the context of a single conversation. But beyond this connotation, code-switching is a phenomenon that references any way in which we subtly, reflexively change how we present ourselves. It becomes a means of expressing different parts of our individual identities, in different cultural and linguistic spaces.

Highlighting this spectrum of code-based art, the work in code/switch will explore technology as subject as well as medium, and will offer a survey of art that critically reflects on the creative use of tech, through a socio-cultural lens. This immersive and interactive exhibition brings together a range of artists, filmmakers, architects, designers, musicians and game developers, all pushing the boundaries of their fields using digital media.
