Talks Back is a screening program and an extension of HACKING / MODDING / REMIXING as Feminist Protest, an exhibition of interventions and provocations on pop culture by women in technology from 1978 to present at Carnegie Mellon University’s Miller Gallery. The exhibtion is on view January 27 to February 26, 2017. The screening program includes video works by women artists who, like Andy Warhol himself, have opted to move away from the limitations of gallery contexts and art world audiences and put themselves in conversation with television and cinema (and their audiences). Inspired by the possibilities offered by public access television in so-called low culture, these artists bring new meaning to films and television programming by inserting themselves into existing media narratives. The exhibition and screening are curated by Angela Washko, visiting assistant professor of art at Carnegie Mellon University.
The program features a live performance by Ann Hirsch. Artists in the program include Ann Hirsch, Barbara Hammer, Dynasty Handbag, Narcissister, Rachel Rampleman, Sadie Benning, Sondra Perry, and Suzie Silver.
