Main Galleries and Outdoors


This exhibition traces the history of video and technology as media that amplified the voices of feminist discourse from second- to third- and fourth-wave aesthetics and strategies. The significance of the title Force Majeure is threefold: it recognizes the power of historical and contemporary demands for voice and visibility; it suggests the ways that nature and the landscape appear within the works in the exhibition; and it acknowledges contingency, as in the force majeure clause that is common in contracts. The exhibition presents a focused selection of influential contemporary video and media works installed throughout the Tarble's gallery and outdoor spaces.
