Amanda V. Wagner presents her project Are We Sexting? Coordinated by Lucas Leyden at Little Berlin. This multimedia show centers around sexuality specifically through the media of mobile messaging and picture sharing. Sexting—defined by the Urban Dictionary—is the “act of text messaging someone in the hopes of having a sexual encounter with them later; initially casual, transitioning into highly suggestive and even sexually explicit.” One of the more sexually explicit variations of sexting is texting a nude. This project asks women to submit for the sake of submission in the absence of critique, and asks us to obtain validation from the experience of participation.
The night will feature a large format photo collage of all the submissions received as well as a Speed Symposium featuring Manon Mavavit, Andrew Cameron Zahn, Dan Pasternack, and Amanda V. Wagner. Plus video art work by BARBARISM which explore and question perceived norms of sexuality. Music by fade sunshine (soundcloud.com/
This one night only event will be held on Friday November 14, 2014 beginning at 6pm inside the Annex at Little Berlin.
