This event has passed.

Virtual Conversation
@ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

This Tuesday at Noon CST join Prof. Jill Casid in the conversation hosted by the Brooklyn Rail’s New Social Environment Series with acclaimed multi-media artist Dineo Seshee Bopape who is based in Johannesburg, South Africa and Martha Joseph, The Phyllis Ann and Walter Borten Assistant Curator of Media and Performance at the Museum of Modern Art in New York on the occasion of Projects: Dineo Seshee Bopape, the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in New York which is on view in the Museum’s street-level gallery until October 8. The central work in this exhibition, the multichannel sound and video installation Lerato laka le a phela le a phela le a phela/My love is alive, is alive, is alive (2022) materializes the screen by incorporating soil, rock, and water. Known for bringing together video, sound, and organic materials in her often site-specific installations, Bopape considers how social, political, and spiritual histories of the African diaspora inhabit the physical land and waters. Originally commissioned by TBA21–Academy and co-produced with Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan, this site-responsive iteration is expanded with additional artworks in clay and soil.
