100 Years | 100 Women
To mark the centennial of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote, Park Avenue Armory, with lead partner National Black Theatre and nine other multi-disciplinary cultural institutions across New York City, created the 100 Years | 100 Women Project, a two-part multi-disciplinary initiative. Collectively, the partners nominated 100 artists, including 2018 Workspace Resident Zalika Azim, activists, scholars, students, and community leaders to respond to the centennial and its complex legacy.
Choose Your Own Adventure
This exhibition by Pixy Liao – Choose Your Own Adventure marks the beginning of the one-year exhibition program of Scope Hannover – Biennale für Fotografie und Medienkunst.
In Choose Your Own Adventure, Pixy Liao has created a site-specific adaptation of her own work that consciously incorporates the use of the Internet. The work reflects the movements on the Internet, the searching and clicking, the back and forth, up to the end of the search. It is a playful review of her own work as a conscious counter-design to a Google image search or a picture gallery.
Exhibition Dates: July 17 – August 26, 2020

An exhibition of her work will also be staged at Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York in Manhattan.
