Matthew Biederman will present a number of solo and collaborative exhibitions over the coming months. Here’s a quick run through of where you can see his work in Summer 2018.
From 23 June to 19 August, Biederman and Marko Peljhan’s Arctic Perspective Initiative takes part in Let's Talk About the Weather: Art and Ecology in a Time of Crisis, a group show at Guangdong Times Museum in Guangzhou, CN. The exhibition looks at urgent issues around a changing climate, future ecological disaster, and what this means for our present moment, and addresses the need for new ways of being and doing in the post-Anthropocene world. As well as the Arctic Perspective Initiative, artists featured in the exhibition include Marwa Arsanios, Sammy Baloji, Design Earth, Pedro Neves Marques, Karrabing Film Collective, and Zheng Bo among others.
From 13 July to 6 October, Biederman presents All The Way Down, the result of his recent residency at the Iberian Nanosystems Laboratory in an exhibition in Portugal. During the residency Biederman produced a new dichroic light sculpture, generative software work, and micro fabricated sculpture. These will be on show in a display curated by Luis Fernandes at gnration, Praça Conde de Agrolongo, Braga, PT.
In September, Biederman and Peljhan will present their ongoing project A Soft Probe + We Should Take Nothing For Granted at Paved Arts in Saskatoon, CA. The project addresses the politics and processes involved in the surveillance of global citizenry, examining what is visible, what is opaque, and what shape the structures of surveillance take. Later in the year, a new version of Biederman’s A Generative Adversarial Network will premiere in Slovenia.
