Eastern Bloc Gallery

Please join us on THURSDAY, MAY 5TH, at 6:00 PM EST at Eastern Bloc (53-55 Louvain O) for the official opening party for In the Middle, a Chimera, as well as the opening for the exhibition element at Eastern Bloc.
**No reservation is required; mask wearing will be mandatory, and social distancing will be maintained during the event.

The exhibition will be open at Eastern Bloc up until and including May 18th from Tuesday to Saturday, 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM EST.

In the Middle, a Chimera considers how new, breakthrough technology developed under the veil of capitalism inevitably bends to its whirling, maelstrom pull (sometimes despite more communitarian originary intentions): the goal of this exhibition/project is to envision and develop community-oriented futures where this pull is redirected towards mutually beneficial relationships, and ways in which we might undermine or re-conceptualize these technologies to not only nurture ourselves but our surrounding ecosystems and environments.
