Nancy Mauro-Flude - Director and Curator
Nancy Mauro-Flude is an artist, curator and writer driven by the demystification of technology, and the ‘mystification’ that lie in and through the performance of the machinic assemblage. Gray magics, hijackings, driftings and seizures of power are many of the sensitive and subversive subterfuges by which the she urges, twists and explores the esthetic politic of the open source spirit. Nancy's creative arts research grapples with practices and talismanic logics of pirate cultures and does much to prick the art world with a potent needle.
