Friday, March 2, 6 p.m.—CASTLETON—The Christine Price Gallery at Castleton will feature the works of artists xtine burrough and Sabrina Starnaman running from Feb. 26-March 30, with an artist reception scheduled for Friday, March 2 at 6 p.m.
Entitled “The Laboring Self” the exhibit juxtaposes the tools of craft with the spirit of the maker-space, where members and non-members share knowledge and ideas, especially at the intersection of craft, tools and technology.
Xtine burrough makes participatory projects for networked publics. Her recent work recovers feminist texts through mediation and reimagines virtual crowd workers as bodies with agency. Using social platforms, databases, search engines, blogs, and applications in combination with popular sites like Facebook, YouTube, or Mechanical Turk, she creates web communities promoting interpretation and autonomy. burrough is passionate about using digital tools to translate common experiences into personal arenas for discovery. Emergent themes in her work include culture jamming, remix, appropriation, and translation.
With Dr. Sabrina Starnaman, burrough is a recipient of a Humanities Texas Award (2016-2017) and funding from The Puffin Foundation West Ltd., for their exhibition “The Laboring Self.”
The Christine Price Gallery is located on the Castleton University campus and is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
