A Situation of Meat presents a group of new installation works by Mel Carter, Maggie-Rose Condit, Braxton Congrove, Dakota Gearhart, and Elizabeth Mputu, exploring contemporary femme identity as mediated through online culture. Using sculpture, video, and digital prints, A Situation of Meat acts as a paradox between the beauty and the grotesque of gendered self-presentation.
