Legacy Russell: Glitch Feminism at Castlefield Gallery, Castlefield 11 March 2017 Entrance is free

In 2013, the New York-born/London-based writer, artist and cultural producer Legacy Russell coined the term “glitch feminism” and began producing scholarship surrounding this socio-techno construct of gender and sexuality. Published in the BOMB, The White Review, Rhizome, DIS, The Society Pages, Guernica and Berfrois, Russell’s academic and creative work focuses on gender, performance, digital selfdom, idolatry and new media ritual. Her first book Glitch Feminism will be published by Verso in autumn/winter 2017 but you can catch her now as Castlefield Gallery welcomes her to Manchester for a talk and audience Q&A.
