Martine Syms: Lessons I-CLXXX

Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art

14 Jun 201830 Sep 2018

Curated by João Ribas, Director of the museum, the exhibition features an ongoing, incomplete video work which consists of a cumulative poem dealing with fragmentary narratives, relating (directly and incidentally) to the lives of black Americans. Drawn from myriad sources – including You Tube videos, 1980s TV shows, Vines and personal footage – the Lessons form a growing corpus that Syms has been making since 2014.

In her practice, Martine Syms (b. 1988, Los Angeles) mainly uses video and performance to examine representations of blackness.
