Performative Lecture

Date: Tue, Jun 18, 2019 08:30PM
Price: $15, $10 Friends, $10 students and seniors

Join the winners of the Marcel Duchamp Prize, France’s most prestigious art award, Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, for a performative lecture, exploring the line where fiction and reality blur.


Inspired by a surprising turn of events during the premier of their 2006 film A Perfect Day, this presentation will feature film stills, clips, and dramatic readings. Be prepared to discover new connections between images, archives, disappearance, context, and truth.


This event sets the stage for the artists’ upcoming exhibition On Scams (I must first apologize) — a multi-part project exploring notions of trust across geographical and virtual borders — on view at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery from June 22 to Sept. 2, 2019.


Both born in Beirut, Hadjithomas and Joreige have been collaborating for over twenty years. As artists and filmmakers, their work has been exhibited globally at such institutions as Whitechapel Gallery, London; the Guggenheim Museum, New York; and the 56th Venice Biennale (2015).
