g_URL, a curatorial project that collaborates with female artists who incorporate and/or investigate technology within their practise, is inviting artists from all disciplines to apply to participate in our next show, due to take place in July.

The next show's concept is techno utopia and its interactions with femininity. We are interested in exploring questions such as: 

- Is a technological utopia possible? If so, what does it look/sound/feel like?
- How useful is the concept of utopia to a progressive feminism? What does a feminist techno­utopia look like?
- How can utopian ideas activate space, or how can space activate utopia?
- Are utopias inherently exclusionary? How does a female utopia interact with class, race, gender?
-  Has technology enabled elements of utopia to exist today?
  Should we be working towards a utopia at all?

We’re interested in any other interactions with this theme and are keen to open other dialogues, so do get in touch.
We will host an evening of performances alongside the show, so are looking to hear from poets, dancers, musicians, performance artists etc. who feel that their work aligns with our theme.
Explaining a bit about you/your practice/any works in progress or planned. Any imagery would be helpful!
The show will be in July so do bear in mind that works need to be ready in time.
