Update: CANCELED.
Jill Magid is traveling for a current project and will not be able to join us in Atlanta this May.

Free and Open to the Public.

Contemporary Talks is a series that connects Atlanta audiences with some of the most consequential thinkers and doers in the world of art and culture. The speakers share thoughts about their past and present projects – what informs and motivates them, what challenges they face, and why it matters.

About Jill Magid:

Brooklyn-based, artist and writer Jill Magid forms intimate relationships with systems of power, including police, military, secret service, corporations, and CCTV surveillance. For Magid, power is not a remote condition to contest, but rather something to manipulate – drawing it closer, exploiting its loopholes, engaging it in dialogue, infiltrating its structure, repeating its logic. With solo exhibitions at institutions around the world including Tate Modern, London; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Berkeley Museum of Art, California; Tate Liverpool; the Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam; Yvon Lambert, Paris and New York; Gagosian Gallery, New York; and the Security and Intelligence Agency of the Netherlands, Magid has received awards from the Fonds Voor Beeldende Kunsten and the Netherland-American Foundation Fellowship Fulbright Grant. Magid has participated in the Liverpool, Bucharest, Singapore, Incheon, and Gothenburg biennials. She is an Associate of the Art, Design and the Public Domain program at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University, and a 2013-15 fellow at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics. An adjunct teacher at Cooper Union, Magid is the author of four novellas.

Free and Open to the Public. Contemporary Talks is sponsored by Possible Futures.
