Disjecta is proud to announce the opening of its 7th Curator in Residence series, curated by Julia Greenway. A Situation of Meat includes large scale installation work by artists Mel Carter, Dakota Gearhart, Maggie-Rose Condit, Braxton Congrove, and features a video by Elizabeth Mputu. Supportive programs and events curated by Julia Greenway will be held in Portland and Seattle throughout the exhibition. The show runs through October 29, 2017 and the gallery is open Friday–Sunday, 12–5pm and by appointment. All events are free to attend and open to the public.

A Situation of Meat presents a group of new installation works exploring contemporary femme identity as mediated through online culture. Using sculpture, video, and digital prints, A Situation of Meat acts as a paradox between the beauty and the grotesque of gendered self-presentation.

Seattle-based curator Julia Greenway will curate four exhibitions for the 2017-18 season at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center for the Curator in Residence Program. Greenway focuses her curation on the examination of digital media’s influence on the aesthetic presentation of gender, economics, and environment.
