Malado Francine is an American multi-media artist based in Los Angeles. Themes around her work include ideas around archaeology and future artifacts, animism, hybrid beings, and the artistic creation of a more empathetic artificial intelligence. A human/animal/tech collaboration. Mythic creatures that blur the lines between the archeological past and the imagined technological future. An attempt to generate a feeling of deep time. The ancient reconfigured as newly totemic. The digital age as future artifact. Future tech as animist.

“It is a strange realism, but it is a strange reality.” 

–Ursula K. Le Guin, The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, 1986

Endings are always beginnings. As an ending begins, it nudges our sense of “now” toward some hazy, perpetual future. It’s a future with soft edges. The future rarely arrives abruptly. It’s a slow burn. We are carried into it fluidly while the shades and shapes of reality are altered around us.

This exhibition was an invitation for artists to speculate about the future and the potential worlds that are imagined through present-tense-endings. Artists were asked to think beyond any notion of the apocalyptic and instead reflect on how life will adapt to experiences of a new now, be that political, industrial, ecological, terrestrial, and so on. The response was overwhelmingly vast and varied. That so many artists are toying with these ideas should make us take notice. They are among our most important world-builders…

Malado Francine Baldwin: GIF

A collaboration between the artist and her self in another form —a split/persona of the artist: from the cut-and-past of 3D-collage to the animated gif of the existing image; the artist works within dualities to create works in multiple platforms. Old school, new school techniques combine to form a colorful and dynamic short-form animé.

ABOUT THE SHOW

Social media are interactive computer-mediated technologies that facilitate the creation or sharing of information, ideas, career interests and other forms of expression via virtual communities and networks.- Wikipedia

Social Media has the implication of Facebook, Instagram,Twitter, Linkedin, and other platforms, which are used for marketing and the bringing together of networks and people. This exhibition is about forming a connection with another artist, (another BC Artist or an artist of your choice) whether it be a painting together, or you curate each other’s work.

We are pleased to present Social Media, a collaboration and thinking about painting and practices beyond our own, in hope of a connection, in this time of isolation.
