Artist Michèle Magema in attendance
Multidisciplinary artist Michèle Magema transforms histories through explorations of her Congolese and French identity and the use of her body as a metaphorical connection. Bridging personal and shared narratives, her work engages with culture, politics, colonialism, feminism, and identity. Magema will present her live performance Les mots mouillés (Wet Words), screen a selection of her videos (including Fleurs de Lys, Derrière la Mer, and The Type of Power), and engage in a conversation with curator Mary Magsamen and Rice University Professor Jacqueline Couti. This program is supported by Etant donnés Contemporary Art, a program developed by FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, with lead funding from the French Ministry of Culture and Institut Français-Paris, Florence Gould Foundation, Ford Foundation, Helen Frankenthaler Foundation, Chanel USA, and ADAGP.
