Generation XX

Syracuse University

For Generation XX, we considered the crutches that Generation-X has grown to rely on in this age of rapid technological advancements and accessibility. Generally, the most comfortable crutch to lean on is the Internet and social media, particularly for the virtual support and reassurance they provide.

Generation-X'ers have experienced some of the most critically radical advancements of technology in their lifetime. With this in mind, the focus of this exhibition was to highlight the impact of technology on the Gen-X population.

Generation XX is one of the most notable exhibitions created by Girl on Girl Syracuse for many reasons, but particularly because it was the first Girl on Girl exhibition to feature works created by non-female-identifying artists. Girl on Girl's core value is to exhibit work created by female-identifying artists in order to create an opportunity for underrepresented artists to show their work in an inclusive, supportive art environment. In regard to Generation XX's concept, we felt that it was important to invite non-female-identifying Girl on Girl allies to offer their perspectives on the matter. The result was a beautiful, insightful display of technological reflection work.
