On Thurs., May 29, Winnipeg-based artist KC Adams delivered an artist talk for her exhibition
Cyborg Hybrids, which runs until the end of June at Neechi Commons (865 Main St.). Cyborg Hybrids is a photo series of "Euro-Aboriginal artists who are forward thinkers and plugged in with technology" (www.kcadams.net). The photos, which are digitally altered to look like air-brushed glamour magazine shots, feature Adams’ subjects sporting white chokers and white T-shirts containing beaded text of Aboriginal stereotypes like "Sniffer" "Gang Member", "Noble Savage" and "Wagon Burner."
The exhibition, inspired by Donna Harroway’s essay A Cyborg Manifesto, has travelled across Canada and the U.S. since 2004, with the Winnipeg edition featuring multiple new pieces.
