- This event has passed.
Artist Mounir Fatmi stages a performance about his decision not to attend a 2017 exhibition of his work in the U.S. in light of the travel restrictions. The performance looks at his experience of encountering his own exhibition through social media and the gaze of strangers. Performed by Hillary Keegin.
Mounir Fatmi was born in 1970 in Tangiers, Morocco and lives and works in Paris. Mounir constructs visual spaces and linguistic games that aim to free the viewer from their preconceptions of politics and religion, and allows them to contemplate these and other subjects in new ways. His videos, installations, drawings, paintings and sculptures bring to light our doubts, fears and desires. His work has been shown in numerous solo exhibitions including at the National Picasso Museum of War and Peace in Vallauris Golfe-Juan and at the Contemporary Art Center Le Parvis. He participated in several group shows at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, The Brooklyn Museum, New York. His installations have been selected in biennials such as the 52nd and 54th Venice Biennial, the 8th biennial of Sharjah.
Hillary Keegin is an actress, past appearances for Three Exercises of Interpretation (2013), Company K (2004) and Les palais des chaussures (2008).
