The photography program at Parsons School of Design, in collaboration with the Aperture Foundation, are pleased to present an artist talk with Maria Antelman.

Maria Antelman is a visual artist whose work explores the relationship between technology and the human condition. Inspired by new and old technologies, Antelman addresses our society’s dependence on technology, and the way humans adapt to meet the needs of the digital landscape. Speaking about her work, Antelman states: “As we become extensions of the technologies we use, our tools change us and change the way we respond to the world. These subtle, yet deep transformations, routed in the complicated systems that machines weave around us, are my main concerns.” In this artist talk, Antelman will speak about her practice and her work featured in the online exhibition Companion Pieces: New Photography 2020 at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Maria Antelman (born in Athens, 1971) is a visual artist based in New York. Upcoming and recent solo shows include Soft Interface (Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Omaha, Nebraska, 2020­–21), Mechanisms of Affection (Visual Arts Center, University of Texas at Austin, 2019) and Disassembler (Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, 2018­­–19). Antelman has been awarded production grants from Onassis USA and the National Museum of Contemporary Art Athens, and has held residencies at Pioneer Works and the International Studio & Curatorial Program, Brooklyn. Antelman is represented by Melanie Flood Projects.
