the New Museum

Fri Feb, 20 2009, 7PM

Jill Magid is a visual artist working in a variety of media including literature, video, sculpture, photography, and performance. Magid seeks intimate relations with impersonal structures. She is intrigued by hidden information, being public as a condition for existence, and intimacy in relation to power and observation. At this event, Magid will discuss recent projects and touch upon her new body of work currently in progress. Magid has had solo exhibitions at Stroom, the Hague, Gagosian, New York, Yvon Lambert, Paris, Centre D'arte Santa Monica, Berlin and Sparwasser in Berlin. She has lectured and performed widely at venues including Orchard, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Eyebeam and the Bowery Poetry Club. Image courtesy of the artist
