Post-Capital: Art and the Economics of the Digital Age

Post-Capital brings together works of sculpture, painting, photography, video and performance that address the nature of production, consumption and wealth. The exhibition takes as its starting point the inherent paradox within a capitalist system that is both dependent upon and threatened by technological progress.

Objects Recognized in Flashes is the title of a group exhibition focusing on approaches to the surfaces of photographs, products, and bodies in a greatly digitalized society. As the interface between optics and object, these seductive and ambiguous surfaces make relations between aesthetics, imagination, and material seem highly dubious, as also are the economies that underlie these relations. The exhibition was conducted in close cooperation with the artists Michele Abeles, Annette Kelm, Josephine Pryde, and Eileen Quinlan, who are actively and broadly involved in the final planning and selection of works.

New Order: Art and Technology in the Twenty-First Century

Josephine Pryde
MoMA, New York
17 March - 15 June, 2019

Today, when technology seems utterly smooth and weightless—composed of invisible waves, wireless signals, abstract codes—New Order explores the ways in which these systems are still stubbornly tied to the physical world and looks at the ways in which contemporary artists, among them Josephine Pryde, use—and misuse—tools and forms. The show features works made since the turn of the millennium that push and challenge the boundaries of technology: upending systems, experimenting with materials, and ultimately inventing novel techniques and substances.

A common interest in the history of motifs and retail display inspired designer Beca Lipscombe and artist Lucy McKenzie to form the Atelier E.B fashion label.

Their first exhibition in France combines contemporary creation, the history of fashion and museum design. It opens with a bespoke showroom for their new collection, Jasperwear, and continues with historical research into the figure of the mannequin, from ancient sculpture to department store windows. It ends with a series of commissions by contemporary artists, among them Josephine Pryde.
