CONTEMPORARY PROJECTS: MARTINE SYMS - LESSONS I- CLXXX
from 14 JUN 2018 to 30 SEP 2018
Contemporary Projects: Martine Sysms presents Lessons I-CLXXX is an ongoing, incomplete video work composed of thirty-second clip – a cumulative poem whose structure evolves at random. Snapshots of disconnected experiences and subjects accumulate into a mass of 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 Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, the Contemporary Projects: Martine Syms Lessons I- CLXXX is curated by João Ribas Director of the Museum.
