The desire to take into account our human creations and consumptive legacies have delivered a flood of post human concerns and anxieties toward uncertain futures. Staring down the past two centuries since the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus, the exhibition, Unfettered, takes measure of our contemporary condition. Shelley’s narrative resounds with compelling questions of ambition and responsibility. Unfettered considers the hubris of progress, the human and the constructed body, the impact of techno data on subjectivity, and the disruptive structures of power.
