Martine Syms: Lessons I-CLXXX

Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, Rua Dom João de Castro 210

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.
