Glitches & Veils is a solo exhibition of works by Emma Safir, bringing together new and recent work from the artist’s material exploration of digital and feminized labor. Through an interdisciplinary practice based in photography and textiles, Safir creates soft, ambivalent objects that function as screen simulations, proxies, and portals. Convex and both absorbing and emanating light, her panels slow down the texture, colors, and experience of screens to dissect and make clear their expressive dimension and impact on the body.
