The Brewery Project presents “Threading Technology”, an exhibition of work by contemporary artists from Los Angeles curated by Christina Valentine.

She writes: “The idea of technology is often presented as a slick, finished product, ready to enhance our lives with the “new” and often “improved” gadgetry. Never hinting of the castoffs, odds and ends that were once the crucial and necessary part of the new and ultra modern vehicle, appliance and communication device, technology is marketed and defined by its seeming finitude that is oddly never finished. It is as if there is a form of hidden entropy within the circle of technology, that constantly haunts the finished, technologically advanced product of its unfailing necessity to be redone, renewed and refinished.”

“Threading Technology” presents work by artists who have picked up on the entropic quality of technology. Gathering and using the visual vocabulary of “used” technology for the purposes of reinvention, these artists bring attention to the disorder within the apparently closed system that is technology.
